Lack of coordination among donor agencies, combined with zero accountability to these projects, can be blamed for the current state of development in the Niger Delta. What ways can project impact and accountability be measured to not only avoid overspending but preventing projects from being repeated (without taking into account lessons learned from past projects) in the the same location and thus producing the same result?
This is one question that needs to be answered. The concept of “Value for Money” is one key requirement that should be enforced on all projects. If a project is making a very good impact, that impact should be measured side-by-side the amount that has been invested in carrying it out. Transparency and accountability compliment each other. Project implementers should be able to state specifically how much their project is worth so that impact can be matched with amount spent.
