This paper has been prepared with a view to draw attention to contemporary projects in Africa from which some lessons can be learnt. It does not intend to advocate against large schemes because the problem is not on the size and complexity as it is on the sustainability and the attainment of desired objectives. The paper focuses on the need for good planning and management skills such that the undertaking does not induce undue difficulties on the economy of a country and constrain other development activities not to mention the numerous list of apparent problems as has been experienced by many countries elsewhere and in Africa.
