The failure of many projects in the Third World, and consequently the failure of the development initiative, is attributed to the application of conventional First World technical and managerial methodologies without regard to the particular characteristics and requirements of the developing areas. This paper reports on initial investigations into the problems involved in the management of planning and implementation of construction projects in the developing areas, suggesting a multidisciplinary approach to their design and structuring, in the light of the attitudes, resources and cultural and developmental characteristics of these areas.
