Education Projects: Elaboration, Financing and Management. Fundamentals of Educational Planning, No. 38.
In many developing countries, the translation of political objectives to action projects is made difficult by the lack of training of staff of the ministry of education planning and managing units. This booklet deals with the implementation of these projects within the framework of the planning process. After defining projects, chapter 1 shows the role they play in the planning process and discusses the advantages and the disadvantages of using them. This chapter then describes the different types of education projects and their evolution over the last 20 years. The second chapter examines the criteria on which the identification and preparation of projects are based, and then goes on to analyze their goals, the various tasks and working methods they require, and the conditions under which they are carried out. In chapter 3, the modalities for financing projects are examined, both national and international sources of money. The problems of intervention by external sources of assistance are mentioned, the main characteristics of such sources are discussed, and the various multilateral funding sources are reviewed. Finally, the chapter examines the conditions under which negotiations are conducted. The final chapter studies the management of projects. It emphasizes monitoring and evaluation, necessitated by a constantly changing environment. (LAP)
