Development planning: Functions and limitations

image of Development planning: Functions and limitations

One of the conclusions emerging from the review of recent experience attempted in the foregoing chapters is the great diversity not only among the developing countries but also in the actual process of development. This reflects the fact that although many long—term objectives are held in common —notably the desire to accelerate the rate of increase in total production and in per capita incomes—yet there are wide differences in the shorter—term ends being sought by individual countries and hence in the context and timing of their development plans and programmes. This in turn reflects differences not only in the range and relative recalcitrance of the obstacles facing them but also in the seriousness and intensity of the development effort being mounted.
