Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungReluctant Partners? combines comprehensive empirical insights into NGOs' work in agriculture with wider considerations of their relations with the State and their contribution to democratic pluralism. This overview volume for the Non-Governmental Organizations series contextualizes and synthesizes the case study material in the three regional volumes on Africa, Asia and Latin America, where over sixty specially commissioned case studies of farmer-participatory approaches to agricultural innovation are presented.
Specific questions are raised. How good/bad are NGOs at promoting technological innovation and addressing contraints to change in peasant culture? How effective are NGOs at strengthening local organizations? How do/will donor pressures influence NGOs and their links to the State?
Pressestimmen"'This is the first major study of its kind, a landmark in our understanding of new institutional potential in agricultural development. Its conclusions deserve to be studied by all who are concerned with agricultural development in the South, whether as policy makers, researchers, practitioners or teachers.."
." . . sheds much light on NGOs' potentials and limitations in the agricultural sector. Since most of the world's poor continue to depend on agriculture for their sustenance, this examination is especially welcome."
