Abstract:This collective volume deals with issues of development planning in Kenya. Most papers were written by members of a technical aid project which was operated in Kenya by York University from 1970 to 1978. Four of the essays relate to specific aspects of project appraisal. The volume aims to contribute to the continuing discussion of project-planning methods and policy issues, out of which new techniques and programmes for development can be anticipated. Contributions: Raising nutritional levels and rural development in Kenya (Paul Cook); Land-use competition at the margins of the rangelands: an issue in development strategies for semi-arid areas (David J. Campbell); The rural nonfarm sector and the development process in Kenya (Don Freeman and Glen Norcliffe); Towards a locational policy for manufacturing industry in Kenya (Clay Wescott and Glen Norcliffe); Coordinating operating and investment expenditures: the need for balance planning and budgetting (Tom Pinfold and David L. Anderson); Intra-programme resource allocation: the case of hospitals in Kenya (David L. Anderson); Accounting prices and project appraisal in Kenya (Paul Cook and Balder Von Hohenbalken); Planning and evaluation of rural electrification in Kenya (Renzo Milanesi). [ASC Leiden abstract]
