Governance of public investment projects in Ethiopa

Demand for public services in sub-Saharan African countries is increasing continuously due to the improvement in governance and awareness in the region. However, poverty, lack of basic infrastructure, and poor industrial development are continuously hindering the ability of the nations to meet this demand. The purpose of this paper is to map and review the governance of public investment projects in Ethiopia and to identify the most important front-end challenges of public investment projects in the country. The research focuses on the front-end governance of major construction projects. The findings of the research indicate that the top-down project approach, lack of mandatory control gateways at the front-end project preparation and decision-making stages, and weak links between project stakeholders affected the effectiveness of the project governance system. In addition, the most important factors that could affect the relevance and sustainability of public investment projects are identified.
