Following a gradual change in donor policies from modernisation to the rhetoric of sustainability, and the acceptance of urbanisation in developing countries, the sustainability of donor funded urban management projects is now the subject of academic and professional debate. This paper examines the potential of the logical framework in providing a standardised methodology to support the process approach to these projects, and to involve stakeholder participation, as contributory factors to transform the rhetoric of sustainable urban management into reality. The sustainability of these projects relies on the transfer of donor roles to the recipient, or continued donor intervention.
