Abstract

Information management is a critical problem for development planning. It is an especially difficult issue for those Third World planning ministries which must adapt to the escalating demands for information posed by a proliferation of donors and multilateral agencies. From this case study, lessons are drawn for future management information system implementations in 'system-poor' technical environments and organisational contexts highly dependent on external funding sources. -from Authors
