GHDP 710 - Country Development Strategies
“Country ownership” is a central principle of development work and strategies and leadership start and end with each country. Development actors, public and private, must situate support and programs in the context of varying country approaches and priorities but also of global institutions and goals, notably as reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “Global goods” issues likewise are significant factors in some program design. These complex intersections must be understood for development interventions that range from the highly technical to broadly framed economic and social change. In this intensive module, students will explore different facets of country strategy processes, in situations that include very poor countries (eg Malawi), middle income countries (eg Mexico, Bangladesh), and countries in crisis or post conflict (eg Egypt, Sierra Leone, Myanmar). The country strategy processes of different development institutions (IMF, World Bank, regional banks, UN, USAID and MCC, large NGOs, private companies) will be explored. Student teams will prepare detailed analyses of a selected country to critique processes and outcomes.
