Since independence, countries in Africa have pursued various unsustainable paths to development. Preoccupied with crises, relief and drought management, most African governments have not succeeded in meeting the aspirations of their pre and post-independence generations. In addition, the central planning and structural adjustment programs they adopted have failed to promote development management and achieve their stated objectives. Consequently, discontent with the performance of past approaches to development has grown. It has also become obvious that sustainable development cannot be effected without productive partnership between the government, private sector, and civil society organizations.
Moreover, in addressing macro-economic considerations, it has become clear that the development processes, would benefit from adopting a long term planning perspective, giving proper consideration to social, demographic and cultural variables.
