The period since 1980 has been called the structural adjustment decade .

This book brings together the theory of the researchers and the practical experience of the policy makers. The distinguished contributors come both from within Africa and from the international donor community. They focus on concrete research findings in both francophone andanglophone Africa and draw out the long term implications for future policy and research.
