Development analysts tend to give short shrift to the seemingly minor bureaucratic hitches faced by practitioners - those who design, manage, implement, and evaluate aid projects. Often critical of foreign aid either for its apparent ineffectiveness at alleviating poverty or its purported neocolonial implications, the academic literaturerarely acknowledges the experiences and pressures faced by practitioners themselves as they implement aid-funded development projects. With chapters written by expert practitioners on different aspects of design and management of international development activities, this book examines real issues and navigates the often controdictory demands of local development needs.
