New Markets for Local Experts in Africa?
In the past decades the involvement of local experts in the planning and evaluation of development projects has steadily increased. Ownership of development planning is propagated as major aim of bilateral and international development co-operation. Yet, the quality and performance of many local experts is still open to question, last but not least, because they share the same technocratic bias as lots of their Western counterparts, notably concerning pro-poor development policies, empowerment and technology transfer. An unreserved replacement of expatriates by local experts, or the replacement of technical assistance by unconditioned budget aid would be counter-productive with respect to poverty-oriented development policies.
