Public construction projects in countries with economic difficulties are funded by donor organizations. These types of projects in low-income countries have been negatively influenced by the communication gap between the among, consultant and the construction contractor, which emerges because of unclear definitions of responsibilities and problems in exchange of information. All stakeholders face significant problems as a result of this gap. The main objective of this paper is to identify and map the processes of donor-funded construction projects to facilitate clear definition of tasks and roles, and support sustainable communication in donor-funded projects. Following a literature review, the paper provides an analysis of the current processes in donor-funded projects and presents a process map for donor funded projects which is developed based on expert interviews and five case studies. Finally, the process map is validated by a set of semi-structured interviews. View Full-Text
