Development Assistance



Development assistance to sub-Saharan African countries after independence started mainly as a historical continuation between new states and their former colonial power. Then political and humanitarian aid joined with military aid as well, contributing to development efforts by these new countries, but development assistance in the 1990s is facing serious problems. ‘Aid fatigue’ has appeared in many highly industrialized countries reflecting the economic difficulties which these countries are facing, such as the high unemployment rate among young citizens. Development assistance decreased as a result.
