Envisioning Development Prospects in Africa

Adebayo Olukoshi (Ed.)

Envisioning Development Prospects in Africa

This special volume on development thinking in Africa was gathered at a conference to mark the 50th anniversary of the creation of the United Nations African Institute for Economic Development and Planning (IDEP), which was created in 1962 to seek ways by which the UN could assist in strengthening the capacity of its African member states in economic management and development planning. That mandate, conceived within the ambit of a partnership between the UN and the then newly independent African countries, has guided the Institute over the years since its establishment.

The IDEP at 50 Academic Conference was convened to provide a space for participants to look back on the history and experiences of development planning in Africa and project forward into the future in terms of the opportunities presented and the challenges that must be tackled. Specifically, the conference contributions from practitioners in development planning, development researchers and policy intellectuals explore ways and means to establish more comprehensive and long-term development visions and planning frameworks that go beyond the current development practice under the umbrellas of the poverty reduction strategies of hindering broader sustainable development.
