The Journal of Social Development in Africa (JSDA) publishes analyses of social development issues as they affect the poor and marginalised. It deals especially with concerns relevant to sub-Saharan Africa and is addressed to development workers, social workers, planners, policymakers and academics in a variety of fields. The Journal seeks to enhance understanding of the social development processes to contribute to the planning and implementation of appropriate intervention strategies at different levels. Its goal is to discover how to target projects that are relevant to those most in need and how to maximise popular participation to create egalitarian and productive communities.
