The project concept has proven to be a vital way of enabling developing countries to invest their resources more effectively for the task of improving the living standards of their people. Since the 1950s, academics and development practitioners have been focusing on projects as units into
which investments could be packaged. This book focuses on how to select the most promising projects, how to prepare them, how to carry them through to completion, and how to operate and maintain them once they are started. It is not a detailed manual on how to do projects work; it is a "how to
use" guide rather than a "how to do" guide.
