27. Approaches that work in rural development: emerging trends, participatory methods and local initiatives.

IERD Series No. 3; K.G. Saur Verlag, Mnnchen, F.R.G.; ISBN 3-598-21043-4; 1988, 414 pp.

The approache in this volume is a dialogue between local initiatives in development practice and emerging trends in the wider development community. In Part I, the focus is on broad development trends. One of the most prominent of these is the increasing importance being attached to the role of non-governmental organizations in development and the need to enhance their institutional capacity. Another is the desire to find ways for all, to talk, plan and work together.

Part II describes the processes or methods whereby various approaches to rural development have led to successful results. The intention here is to share some of the more of recent development experiences, from a variety of perspectives and a number of different countries.

These include participatory planning and problem solving, people-centered evaluation, training of trainers and innovative conferencing.

In Part III, the emphasis is on what is happening at the grassroots and its impact on the development process. There is an increasing acknowledgement that the grassroots is the basic building block for effective and lasting development. Not only is there an awareness of the need to strengthen indigenous institutions but village-based initiatives themselves are calling for more attention and support. This key area from the perspective of the individual, small-scale projects, organizations and networks is examined.

The concluding chapter weaves together some of the insights contained in the three parts of the book and points to new directions for the future of development. The last part of the book contains appendices which list activities, programmes and resource materials that have been used in the third phase of the project.

An additional feature of this volume is the publication of interviews with six participants in India 1984. These six profiles acknowledge the critical contribution such people make to the entire development process.
