"This volume reports on the findings of an international research project on aid effectiveness in Africa. Research teams in eight African countries in collaboration with northern research institutes conducted field work to seek to understand why aid often, failed to promote development and how it could be improved. The volume concludes that to become more effective in the future, aid to Africa will have to find ways to develop more effective public institutions that are able to fully take charge of the development process."--Jacket
The political economy of evaluation : international aid agencies and the effectiveness of aid by Jerker Carlsson( Book )

Most aid projects have the explicit objective to improve welfare and contribute to economic growth. Aid agencies therefore advocate the use of economic analysis in appraisals and evaluations to ensure the achievement of these objectives. Despite such recommendations, economic analyses are rare in many agencies, and when conducted they tend to have more of a legitimizing than predictive or learning value

"It is directed at an African readership aiming to contribute to an increased understanding of the difficult and long-term work of developing good management and institutions in Africa, but also at the donor community where it is hoped to encourage the emergence of more effective assistance in this area."--Jacket
