Who should define ‘DEVELOPMENT’?

  • by


As a development practitioner, I have often come across the divergence of the way this term is perceived, understood and defined by sources of capital and resources and the subjects of development.

Some few instances I have come across on the African continent being;

– the incorporation of culture and community values in the global definitions of diversity🙊

– priorities and classifications of resources in the green agenda 🙊

– key metrics of reporting on credit worthiness and economic stability e.g the role hard currencies play in African economies 🙊

The list is unfortunately and controversially long.

QUESTION: what will facilitate convergence ? Is it in Africa’s best interests to pursue convergence?
