Tracking Development
Title: Tracking Development
Creator: Nederland / Ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken
Abstract: Tracking Development was a multilateral, international research project (October 2006 to September 2011) on the comparative development trajectories of Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa over the last 50 years. The project was funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The objectives were inter alia
* To seek answers to the question of why Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa have diverged so sharply in development performance in the last 50 years
* To compare in detail the developmental records of a number of case study countries (Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia), establishing the main trends, processes, and junctures of decision-making.
* To give decision-makers in the study countries the opportunity to explain what strategic decisions they made, and why, during the decades since 1955. [according to site editor's information; editors ilissAfrica]
