Thank you for your comment, with which I broadly agree. The cases documented in the African Successes study are not necessarily projects of multinational institutions like the World Bank. Many of them, such as Rwanda's tourism, Mali's mangoes and the Kickstart program, were conceived, designed and implemented locally. Even those that received external support could not have succeeded without local initiative and drive. In fact, what distinguishes these successes from similar efforts that didn't succeed is that they emerged from a domestic consensus or idea within the countries.
