Analysis of Human Resource Development and Utilization in Nigeria, Summary and Conclusions.
Education and World Affairs, New York, NY.
This report is a second synthesis of the observations and recommendations of the Education and Human Resource Development Committee's Nigerian Project Task Force, which have been in the process of formulation since early 1965. A summary report, this paper does not include substantiation of all points: it is meant to present an overview of the Task Force's observations, to support recommendations for AID's (Agency for International Development) program of assistance to Nigeria. The paper is also submitted in this preliminary form to promote a more intensive discussion of Nigerian human resource development and utilization within AID, between AID and the Nigerian Project Task Force, and between these groups and those Nigerians in policy-making positions. The first section of the report, "General Perspectives," discusses the concept of human resource development and utilization, the Nigerian economy and its divers sectors, and the spectacular progress and persistent problems. Section II discusses education-oriented institutions, training-oriented elements, and strategy for modern sector education and training. Sections III and IV deal with employment generation and education and training for the less-developed sectors. Concluding remarks in Section V point out the need to mobilize the nation's total resources for achievement of a more balanced pattern of development. (AMM)
