In contrast to the first decade following independence, Africa's development performance during the last two decades has been uniformly bleak. In response to the severity of the problem, desperate attempts have been made to identify and implement a strategy that would reverse this trend. Among those have been the IMF Economic Stabilization Programmes, the joint Structural Adjustment Programmes of both the IMF and the World Bank, the Lagos Plan of Action and the African Alternative to the Structural Adjustment Programmes.
