The incentive structures for several actors in the action arenas of three Sida-supported projects in Zambia are identified using the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework, to examine how these affect the likelihood of ownership and sustainable project outcomes. Zambia’s relative dependency on aid has a profound impact on incentive structures conducive to beneficiary ownership, and thus also to sustainable outcome. The implications of findings on the incentives found in these cases are discussed.
