7 Acknowledgments The principle responsibility for conducting this study and for writing of the resulting report lays with Mr. John Martin from Cambridge Education Consultants (CEC), UK, and Ms. Riitta Oksanen from FTP International, Finland. Both participated as members of the technical support team on three joint donor ESDP preparation missions. Ms. Oksanen was also involved in conducting a study concerning harmonization of donor procedures. Dr. Tuomas Takala from the University of Tampere, Finland, participated in analyzing the data and in writing the report. Dr. Takala is the only member of the team who had no direct involvement in ESDP preparation. His participation provided comparative insights from other ESDPs. In order to set the overall context for this study, a sub-study was commissioned to examine developments leading to the initiation of the ESDP between 1994 and This sub-study was carried out by Ato Girma Asfaw, Ato Zewdu Desta and Ato Tesfaye Kelemework from the MOE in Addis Ababa. The study was funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Finland and the Department for International Development (DFID), UK. The Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA) agreed to publish the report in its series of publications. We would like to offer our thanks to all persons who participated in interviews, and discussions and to those who provided comments on the draft report for their inputs, without which this study would not have been possible.
