The Cold War and the reshuffling of the world economic and political order were witnessed by the critical decade of 1990s. This brought political and economic changes that have increased the significance of development assistance as an important mechanism affecting international relations. Such changes forced policy makers in donor countries to rethink the destination and agendas of assistance. The concept of development was widened to give more importance to human development criteria, like the basic education and individual empowerment. The ultimate purpose of development implies that the formation of human beings makes up a large part of the development process. This highlights the importance of education in the development as an instrument for reducing poverty and inequality, improving health and social well-being, and laying the basis for sustained economic growth.
