Sida Review 2009:03 / Swedish development cooperation with Namibia in the area of Public Administration 1990-2006 is analysed in the report, including the fields of central banking, public sector audit and national statistics. The main lessons learned are: management matters need special attention; keep the focus on continous learning; a holistic perspective is needed; dealing with conflicting views is important; strike a deal between strengthened institutional capacity and assistance for producing immediate results; and Sida needs to improve methods for monitoring and evaluation of development programmes aiming at institutional capacity building.
