Abstract

One book in a series comprising three regional studies and one overview volume, the 25 papers focus on farmer-participatory approaches to agricultural innovation initiated by NGOs and state institutions in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, the Gambia and Senegal. Ecah volume explores how good NGOs are at promoting technological innovation and addressing constraints to change in peasant culture, how effective they are at strengthening grassroots and local organizations, and how donor pressures are influencing NGOs and their links to the state. -M.Amos
