    Abstract

    Africa is the world's most aided major region. Yet economic growth has been disappointingly low there. A number of factors explain the poor outcomes and limited sustainability of and in Africa. But the organisation and management of the aid relationship is a particularly important one, including the dependence of Africans on that aid. The currently popular nostrums for solving the problem of the effectiveness in Africa--selectivity, ownership, sector investment programme and more aid--are as yet inadequate and often contradictory. Much more work and honest debate needs to occur before the problem of aid effectiveness can be tackled in Africa. Copyright 1999 by Oxford University Press.
