This paper aims to draw attention to comtemporary projects in Africa from which some lessons can be learnt. It does not intend to advocate against large schemes because the problem is not seen as being the size and complexity but rather to hinge on issues like sustainability and the ability to achieve the desired objectives. In this context the paper focuses on the need for good planning and management skills so that such projects do not impose undue difficulties on the economy of a country so as to constrain other development activities.
