Development plans

The African Studies Centre Leiden library has a large number of microfiches showing the development plans of almost every country in Africa from just after the Second World War, until the end of the 1990s. Each plan covers a period of four to five years and offers a detailed overview of the socio-economic situation at the time of its publication.

It is possible to study these plans with a microfiche reader at the library.

For information on how to access these development plans, ask at the information desk or send us an e-mail, asclibrary@ascleiden.nl
