Many governments are indecisive about the role of the state in this era of rapid change, and a new policy development and management paradigm is emerging – a transition from administration to management is under way. This book offers a practical framework within which policy can be conceptualised, formulated, implemented and evaluated.



Limitations and Constraints to Policy Formulation, Co-Ordination and Collaboration

This is quite apart from the problem of insufficient knowledge and skills for the policy formulation exercise.
