Dissertation proposal on Investment appraisal and risk management from an African perspective: The case for Cameroon
Investment appraisal and risk management from an African perspective: The case for Cameroon
Recognizing investment and risks concepts/theories from African industry context, case of Cameroon
The dissertation rationale is geared towards the recognition and understanding of investment appraisal and risk management placing organizing research paradigm into the Cameroon case assessment as to how the latter is achieving effective investment and controls the risk management placed on investment activities deemed to partake at Cameroon. The need to integrate focus, on the aim and objectives which places ample weight on the organization and structuring of the literature review. The relevance in view of research methodology is essential adopting in case study inquiry and several secondary research approach from within research evidence will point to the process of investment and its risks based on the Cameroon perspective. To spontaneously and precisely involve the process of research upon gathering of useful data and information from within investment appraisal and risk management are applied to determine founding relationship of the two from within the Cameroon context focus.
The one good aim for this study is the recognition as well as application of research towards investment assessment and risk management in valuable concepts/theory framework piloting the case of Cameroon in Africa
For the objectives, the following will be considered
The need to arrived at a critical analysis as well as review of investment and its underlying risks
The understanding of the appraisal and management status of investment and risks put in research with comprehensive literature support
Investigating economic resources, such growth and impact at Cameroon in accordance to investment measures and risks assimilation
Achieve enough amount of research knowledge and integrity to be able to validate and rely on methods execution for this study
Amiably, ‘Cameroon is classified as one lower-middle-income country, since it became a unified and independent country in 1961, Cameroon has received significant amounts of foreign aid, most of it from France and the European Economic Community. Since the 1960s, economic growth in the country has been quite significant. Between 1965 and 1980, the gross domestic product grew at an average annual rate of 5.1% and at a rate of 2.3% between 1980 and 1990’ (Mukum Mbaku, 1993 p. 1309). Indeed, ‘Cameroon seems such good test case for determining the effects of foreign aid on economic growth in developing countries. An econometric model, based on the neoclassical production function, is developed and used to test the relationship between foreign aid and economic growth. The model is tested using time-series dated on the country from 1971 to 1990. The results show that domestic resources have a stronger impact on economic growth in Cameroon than foreign resources. These results, however, must be taken with the understanding that the data suffer from measurement problems, the time period is relatively short, and that estimated coefficients may suffer from specification and other problems’ (Mukum Mbaku, 1993 p. 1309).
The methodology to be employed for this research study will be comprehensive account of literature review assessment and the integration of case study approach linking to investment and risks in the context of Cameroon as the case study will be focusing on how investment partakes at Cameroon from within the field of empirical research towards the relationship of risk management upon investment evaluation from within financial institutions at Cameroon thus, the method process is along with a survey technique, the focal information will then be used in order to form founding basis of investment and risk knowledge as well as the underlying evaluation there is, engaging to the accounting standards in support to the African perspective. The need to examine case analysis and case analysis method, interview will transcribe and comment needs to be clustered together with given conceptualization. The research implies to qualitative methods such as open-ended questions and quantitative methods such as to request respondents to rank their views about specific question in the questionnaire, as there implies to one ordinary measure such as those that assume level into investment and risk research (Marshall and Rossman, 1999). Data will be collected and analyzed through using qualitative techniques such as pointing towards document analysis, interviews and questionnaire survey. The primary data is to be collected from the respondents in case situations, secondary data is to comprise of reference concerning research subject. The using of existing information on such levels into the study to be realized upon.
Ethical Consideration and Issues
There is top confidentiality of the research participants protecting to their personal information from within there assumes that the critical role of adhering to the research standards in conducting study investigations having in a primary focus as essential consideration will be in placed when it comes to research ethics as well as values in order to avoid issues of inconsistency in data stature and certain biases during research administration and so, research ethical consideration is essential in the research process as based on rationality to adhere for successful and effective research formation.
