On 30 November 1999 the Programme for Development Research (PRODDER)
at the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) will publish the latest

Southern African development organisations.
The objective of this publication is to support the Southern African
reconstruction and regional development process with a comprehensive
overview of the activities of all the region's development roleplay-
The PRODDER Directory is the most comprehensive development publica-
tion of its kind on any geographical region in Africa and has become
a much sought-after reference tool on the Southern African develop-
The new PRODDER Directory is divided into four main parts.
The first part, which is the background to the directory information,
consists of foreword contributions by David Barnard, Coordinator of
the Programme for Development Research (PRODDER) at the Human Sci-
ences Research Council (HSRC), Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Secretary-General
of The Commonwealth, Dr K Y Amoako, Executive Secretary of the Eco-
nomic Commission for Africa (ECA), Dr Kaire Mbuende, Executive Secre-
tary of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), Erastus
Mwencha, Secretary-General of the Common Market for Eastern and
Southern Africa (COMESA) and Safoora Sadek, former Executive Director
of the South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO).
The second part consists of 14 chapters, listing more than 5600 de-

The third part consists of a chapter which highlights the headquarter
contact detail of international organisations which operate in South-
The fourth part consists of eight chapters which focus on regional,
continental and international organisations involved in the Southern
African development process, namely the Southern African Development
Community (SADC), Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa
(COMESA), Organisation of African Unity (OAU), African Development
Bank (ADB), Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), United Nations De-
velopment Programme, International Bank for Reconstruction and Devel-

Given the growing number of organisations covered by the PRODDER Di-
rectory, and as the Southern African edition of this publication is
only published on a bi-annual basis, the contents of this publication
will also be available on the Internet:
In addition to all the information published on each organisation in
the PRODDER Directory, the Internet version also includes additional
categories of information, including mission statement, activities
and regional offices.
The introduction of the Internet version has been necessitated by the
potential of the Internet to present users with updated information
on an ongoing basis. It is in line with PRODDER's objective to pro-
vide its users with various options to access PRODDER's development
information products and services.
