Abstract

This series of views by experts with extensive international field experience addresses the complexities of consultant-counterpart relationships in technical cooperation projects in developing countries. Opinions are expressed about the project context established by donor agencies and host countries, the selection and assignment of foreign consultants and local counterparts, and their involvement in the process of project formulation and execution. It is important to recognize that disparities in the perceptions of consultants and counterparts about their respective roles are quite common, nevertheless there is consensus on the need to review and resolve some obvious points of conflict.
