The Education Sector Development Program in Ethiopia (ESDP) is the first five year phase of a 20 year Sector Wide Approach (SWAP) aimed at increasing access, improving quality, increasing effectiveness, achieving equity and expanding finance at all levels of education in Ethiopia. This report records the results of the ESDP self-assessment by those who were most closely involved in the process. The study provided all participants-Ethiopia stakeholders, donor representatives and consultants-with an opportunity to reflect and contribute their views on the design and preparation of the ESDP.

Government's Coordination of Aid to Education: The Case of Namibia by Peter Williams.
This study analyses the situation in Namibia as it stood at the end of 1994 and documents the process that a government can use to coordinate external assistance to the national education system. This can serve as a reference to other African countries as they explore approaches to improved management of external support for their education systems. Although there has since been some reorganization of structures for educational administration and management of external aid in Namibia, and despite changes in government organization, many of the basic principles explored in the study remain valid.

This document explains debt swaps which have been an alternative for developing countries where the overwhelming volume of debt precludes full repayment of loans. Using charts, graphs and concrete examples, the authors outline the basic prerequisites of eligibility for a swap, as well as mitigating factors and inherent risks. The Technical Annex includes a description of how Zambia managed a US$ 200 million commercial debt reduction through a debt swap.
