Internationally driven development programmes have not been
entirely successful in transforming the economic status of African
countries. Since the late 1990s many African countries have started
to take initiatives to develop an integrated framework that tackles
poverty and promotes socio-economic development in their respective
countries. This book provides a critical evaluation of `homegrown'
development initiatives in Africa, set up as alternatives to
externally sponsored development. Focusing specifically on Ghana,
Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya, the book takes a qualitative and
comparative approach to offer the first ever in-depth analysis of
indigenous development programmes. It examines: How far African
states have moved towards more homegrown development strategies.
The effects of the shift towards African homegrown socio-economic
development strategies and the conditions needed to enhance their
success and sustainability. This book will be of interest to
students and scholars of development studies, international
politics, political economy, public policy and African politics,
sociology and economics.
