Insights from one social enterprise's


journey to deliver on good intentions

Why is it that so many organizations,


seeking to do good in the world, miss
opportunities to do so and indeed
sometimes exacerbate the very problem
they seek to address? The Business of
Doing Good reveals six insights for
microfinance and other social purpose
organizations using the marketplace to
tackle a range of pressing social
challenges. To deliver on good
intentions, we need to do more than
simply deliver good products, and
become organizations designed to do
good.
The insights focus on creating a
business model that moves beyond
conventional wisdom about clients and
marketplace. This means getting to grips
with the realities of clients lives, and
delivering products that address their
real needs (rather than simply chasing
market demand). It also means
recognizing that our vision is realized
through our people. By tapping into their
potential, and supporting them to do
difficult work, we can do quality work
and innovate to constantly do it better.
Finally, the insights challenge us to
make our social value proposition work

Livestock Emergency
Guidelines and Standards 2nd
Edition
Edited by LEGS

The LEGS process grew out of the


recognition that livestock are a crucial
livelihood asset for people throughout
the world many of whom are poor and
vulnerable to both natural and
human-induced disasters and that
livestock support is an important
component of emergency aid
programmes.The publication of the first
edition of LEGS in 2009 responded to the
need to help donors, programme
managers, technical experts, and others
to design and implement livestock
interventions in emergencies. At the
same time, LEGS recognized the need to
plan for climatic trends affecting
communities that rely heavily on
livestock. The first edition drew on
multi-agency contributions, on
wide-ranging reviews, and on collations
of practitioner experiences of using
evidence-based good practice. This
second edition builds on the first
edition by incorporating new
experiences and evidence obtained
since 2009 as well as user feedback
provided as a result of a broad
consultation process.

Looking back at reconstruction and


disaster risk reduction in housing

Huge levels of aid are spent on


reconstructing housing after disasters.
Have these houses withstood the test of
time and hazard? Just as important from
the point of view of their owners, has the
reconstruction process played a part in
restoring their livelihoods and social
networks? Unfortunately, aid agencies
rarely go back to assess the impact of
reconstruction in the longer term. The
research upon which Still Standing? is
based has done just that. Agencies that
undertook projects 335 years ago in
countries throughout Asia and Latin
America have gone back to record
changes and to interview beneficiaries,
builders, authorities and other agencies
in their project areas.This book
describes the stories of the project
beneficiaries and how their houses have
changed, within contexts that have kept
changing too. Still Standing? is essential
reading for architects and engineers
involved in humanitarian fieldwork as
well as students and researchers
concerned with disaster risk reduction.

Training for Transformation in


Practice
Anne Hope and Sally Timmel

Training for Transformation is an


approach to community organization
encompassed in three books which
enables people to read their reality and
write their own history using a
combination of group processes,
socio-economic analysis and
organizational development processes.
Since its inception 40 years ago,
Training for Transformation has been
put into practice in over 60 countries
globally. But how have people been
using these materials in their
communities over this period? Training
for Transformation in Practice brings
together the experiences of activists who
have adapted these materials to their
own social and cultural contexts. The
book describes the roots of Training for
Transformation in peoples struggles in
the global South to gain political and
economic independence and to
overcome poverty. It outlines the
theoretical origins of the approach and
also includes Impact Assessment Tools,
developed by activists who have used
the training in their work.The book is
inspiring reading for students of adult
education and community organizers.

Wellbeing and Quality of Life


Assessment

Wellbeing Ranking

A practical guide

Developments in applied
community-level poverty research

Edited by Sarah C White

Edited by John Rowley

Human development may encompass


social, cultural and spiritual facets as
well as economic improvement, and
development organizations are
beginning to recognize this fact. But
building into programming a wider
understanding of development throws
up a number of questions: how do our
organizations define wellbeing and
quality of life? What do target
communities in the global north or
south mean by a quality of life? How can
we measure change in wellbeing, and
attribute it to our programming?
Wellbeing and Quality of Life
Assessment is a practical resource for
people working in social or development
policy and practice who are thinking
about integrating wellbeing or quality of
life in their work in both the global
North and South.The main body of the
book presents different tools that have
been developed and used in social and
development policy and practice and
outlines the inspiration behind their
approach, how it works, what has been
learnt through it, and issues and
dilemmas that remain.

Wealth-ranking is a participatory tool


enabling people to group their fellows
into wealth bands, and thus identify the
very poor. Now the method has been
developed to include the broader
aspects of wellbeing, such as social
standing and health, that people value
as much as material wealth. Wellbeing
Ranking tells the story of the
development of these assessment
methods since the rise of wealth ranking
in the 1980s. It looks at the results of
wellbeing ranking exercises and how
they help identify important differences
within communities and monitor
changes in wellbeing over time.The book
suggests that understanding differences
within communities is essential for
good development aid work and
describes the successful use of ranking
tools over large populations and the
value of using multi-dimensional
models of wellbeing.This book is
essential reading for everyone
interested in participatory methods,
from researchers and students of
international development, to field
workers and staff of international
development agencies.

Basic Accounting for


Community Organizations and
Small Groups

Building Financial Management


Capacity for NGOs and
Community Organizations

John Cammack

John Cammack

The success of any venture, whatever its


size, depends on proper financial
control. This book offers a step-by-step
guide to basic accounting and financial
management techniques. It is written in
plain language for people who have no
previous experience of accounting and
book-keeping. Using simple case
studies, the author shows how to:
construct a budget and cash-flow
forecast; record and control cash
payments; draw up an analysed cash
book, and a receipts and payments
account; operate a bank account; and
prepare a budget and actual statement.
Each section is followed by activities to
practise the material covered. Full
solutions and notes for trainers and
facilitators are also included. Basic
Accounting is suitable for training
non-governmental organizations in an
international development context.
However the procedures described in
this book are not specific to
development programmes. This book
should be useful to any small group that
needs to keep accurate records of its
financial transactions.

This book presents practical ways to


build financial management capacity in
an international development context
(although much of it applies to any
non-profit organization). It describes
good practice in the specific tasks of
financial management for example,
planning and budgeting and financial
controls. It gives examples of how
groups and organizations build their
own capacity. It also considers what
leadership teams can do to guide their
organizations longer-term direction and
improve governance and it describes
other financial management aspects
such as building reserves that can be
built into an organizations structure to
make it more sustainable. Building
Financial Management Capacity should
be read by programme staff and
managers of non-government
organizations, larger community-based
organizations (CBOs), and charities, as
well as for large NGOs and donors
working with their partner NGOs and
CBOs. The content can also be used in
training courses, and university and
college courses for international
development workers.

Community-based Adaptation to

As climate becomes less predictable and


extreme weather events become more
frequent, there is an urgent need for
support that will help communities to
prepare and adapt to changing
conditions. This support is needed at the
local level as well as the national, and
must be framed by appropriate policy
that secures real benefits for those most
at risk. 'Community-based adaptation'
(CBA) has been extensively piloted by the
NGO community to analyse and
understand the impacts of climate
change. It is vital that development
practice on the ground, as well as the
knowledge and capacity of those most
affected, keeps pace with lessons that
have emerged from more than a decade
of action and research. This book's
findings reflect on experiences of CBA in
practice to frame lessons for adaptation
planning in developing countries and
deepen understanding of CBA among
researchers, students and practitioners
with an interest in climate change
adaptation.

Contribution to Change

An approach to evaluating the role of


intervention in disaster recovery
Roger Few, Daniel McAvoy, Marcela
Tarazona and Vivien Margaret Walden

As the number of people affected by


disasters has risen, so have the
expectations placed on humanitarian
agencies by donors, the public and the
affected populations themselves.
Agencies must now provide evidence of
impact of their interventions. But
applying conventional evaluation
methods can pose problems. How can
we assess the difference that
intervention makes? Is it ethical to
consign some disaster-affected
communities to control groups? How
feasible is it to collect baseline data
among people who have just been
traumatized? This guide provides a
reliable and practical method for
identifying the contribution an agency
makes to changes to peoples lives in the
recovery period following disasters.
It outlines 11 steps that take evaluators
through designing quantitative and
qualitative methods through to
collecting field data and developing a
narrative of evidence and change.

Achieving Water Security

Aid, NGOs and the Realities of


Women's Lives

Edited by Roger Calow, Eva Ludi and


Josephine Tucker

Edited by Tina Wallace and Fenella


Porter

Achieving water security remains an


elusive goal yet the benefits of investing
in water, sanitation and hygiene to
achieve basic water security and
alleviate poverty are clear. Households
benefit through a range of livelihood
impacts; economies benefit from greater
economic activity and over the
longer-term, households and economies
benefit through greater resilience to
climate change and shocks. So why are
governments and their development
partners struggling to meet water and
sanitation targets? What factors make it
difficult to sustain services at scale?
And how can policies and plans for
delivering and sustaining services for
poor people be strengthened in the face
of multiple pressures, including climate
change? This book addresses these
questions and draws conclusions for
policy and practice, linking findings
with current international debates on
service delivery in rural areas. This
book should be read by government
agencies, donor organisations and
NGOs, as well as academics and
researchers in the water, sanitation and
hygiene sector. Published in association
with ODI.

Aid organizations have their origins in a


desire to help the worlds poorest and
most marginalized people but are they
reaching these people? Factors are
coming together that put pressure on
NGOs working in development: the
economic crisis, the growing
conditionality of aid, and increased
competition for funding between NGOs.
This creates a perfect storm driven by a
new language of aid, policies and
procedures leaving poor women behind.
This book explores how international
NGOs are navigating these rapid
changes that challenge their role and
legitimacy, values, and overall purpose.
The writers see a crisis for NGOs as they
are pulled further from those they claim
to work with; they also explore
alternative ways of conceptualizing
development, and of bringing about
improvements for the most marginalized
and increasingly unheard women.

Lessons from research in water supply,


sanitation, and hygiene in Ethiopia

Peter Fellows

Small-scale food processing is


important worldwide. For individual
processors, it is highly accessible as a
start-up business, especially for women;
farmers and fishermen can readily
diversify into processing to increase
their incomes; and high added-value
enables processors to earn an income
from relatively small scales of
production. For policy makers:
small-scale food processing can create
employment, increase food security and
improve nutritional standards.Written
by an experienced food technologist and
author, this book provides
comprehensive technical and business
information on all aspects of
small-scale food processing in a single
text. From how to assess the market, to
primary and secondary processing,
packaging, managing food safety, and
finances, the book covers all the
technical details and up-to-date
information needed by a food processor.
It is written in simple language suitable
for the non-specialist and also for
people who have English as a second
language.

Farmers' Choice

Evaluating an approach to agricultural


technology adoption in Tanzania
Edited by Helene Bie Liller and Ulrik
Lund-Srensen

Food security is an urgent international


priority. However, agricultural extension
methods that relied on imposing
centrally-developed technological
solutions have been ineffective, since
small farmers in developing countries
often cultivate marginal lands, working
under constraints for which these
solutions were not designed. Since 2006,
a flexible agricultural extension
approach has been implemented in
Northern Tanzania, inspired by the
Farmer Field School approach, and
offering farmers a basket of technology
options from which farmers can pick
and choose what serves their needs and
resources best. The focus is on
extending improved low-cost farming
techniques adaptable to local
conditions in a pragmatic and flexible
process. The interventions are locally
known as RIPAT,have received financial
and technical support from the
Rockwool Foundation. Farmers Choice
outlines the RIPAT intervention, and
examines how effective it has been.This
evaluation should be read by all those
interested in improving the food security
and incomes of poor farmers in the
Global South.

The SEEP Network

The Minimum Economic Recovery


Standards sponsored by SEEP and
developed by joint efforts of more than
60 discrete agencies, with several
hundred individuals providing feedback,
represent a consensus across agencies
engaged in economic recovery and
development on what constitutes an
effective and appropriate response to
help disaster-affected populations gain
fair access to viable economic
opportunities, allowing them to regain
their livelihoods and provide for
themselves and their families with
dignity. In order to ensure sustained and
long-term economic recovery from
crisis, the Minimum Economic Recovery
Standards need to become an integral
part of the development and
implementation of humanitarian
assistance. As the Sphere Guidelines are
common standards and do not
address economic recovery
programming, the Minimum Economic
Recovery Standards were developed, in
coordination with the Sphere Project, to
address this gap.

Performance Management equips staff


at financial institutions across
emerging economies with frameworks
and tools to manage people effectively.
To sustain the business of financial
institutions, leaders and managers must
focus on performance. This means
helping staff to maintain quality,
efficiency, productivity,
cost-effectiveness, and ethical business
practices. It also means managing
people and the way they work so that
they handle as many transactions as
they can, open as many deposit
accounts as they can, and process as
many high-quality loans and
repayments as they can. Performance
Management covers all areas of
performance management for banking

and operational considerations and
setting up a performance management

Poor People's Energy Outlook

Savings Groups at the Frontier

Practical Action

Maximum transparency, a profitable


structure for saving, access to small
loans and an annual lump sum of
capital are the hallmarks of the Savings
Group methodology. The outcome:
empowered groups, made up mostly of
women, who manage themselves as tiny
financial institutions. Today there are
Savings Groups in 60 countries with
more than 6 million members, the result
of initiatives carried out by dozens of
international and local NGOs. Savings
Groups at the Frontier explores the
issues that will shape the future of
Savings Groups. What are the costs,
required inputs, and anticipated
outreach of these groups? How does
replication take place? How sustainable
are the groups? Is it feasible to integrate
financial and non-financial services?
Are linkages to the formal system
desirable? What is the impact of groups
on members and their households? How
can performance be managed? This
book addresses issues, not from the
perspective of the financial institution,
but in support of group members and
savers who are managing their own
financial services.

Energy for community services

In many countries poor peoples energy


access is yet to be given sufficient
priority and fails to be acknowledged as
a key enabler in improving health,
education, and other community
services. As a contribution to creating a
new energy narrative, the Poor peoples
energy outlook (PPEO) highlights what
matters to poor people. It prioritizes
their perspectives and those of
practitioners working with them. PPEO
2013, the third in the series, focuses on
delivering energy at community level,
illustrating the difference that improved
energy services and supply can make to
health, education and infrastructure,
including access to water, and street
lighting. The report makes the case for
energy for community services;
encouraging greater investment in, and
integration of, this often neglected area
of energy provision. The Poor peoples
energy outlook 2013 will be of interest
to anyone seeking to understand better
the interaction between energy access
and community services, both energy
sector professionals and development
practitioners alike.

Feminists in Development
Organizations
Change from the margins

Understanding Organizational
Sustainability through African
Proverbs

Edited by Rosalind Eyben and Laura


Turquet

Insights for Leaders and Facilitators

Feminists in Development Organizations


arises from a collaborative project of
feminists working inside the head
offices of multilateral organizations,
government aid agencies and
international NGOs.The personal stories
in this book show that these feminists
are tempered radicals positioned on
the border of the development agencies
that employ them. It is a place where
they are neither fully one thing nor
another: neither fully paid-up,
pen-pushing bureaucrats, nor full-blown
feminist activists on the barricades.
Nevertheless, feminist bureaucrats see
their work as urgent, essential and a
necessary contribution to global efforts
to achieve womens rights. This book
shows how feminists can build effective
strategies to influence development
organizations to foster greater
understanding and forge more effective
alliances for social change. This book is
aimed at staff of development
organizations and students and
researchers concerned with the politics
of gender mainstreaming.

African cultural heritage, passed on


from generation to generation has been
the source of guidance for African
communities in times of peace,
uncertainty, birth, life and death. In this
book the power of traditional wisdom
contained in African proverbs is
directed at organizational development
and change. The result is a fresh new
perspective on organizational
management with important lessons for
leaders, consultants, volunteers and
expatriates working or preparing to
work in Africa. Rooted in proven
practice, the book specifically
addresses the needs of leaders and
consultants in African organizations
seeking to implement performance
improvement and organizational
change, and contains proverb-driven
assessment templates for use in
workshop situations.

The power of participatory statistics


Edited by Jeremy Holland

Local people can generate their own


numbers and the statistics that result
are powerful for themselves and can
influence policy. Development
practitioners are supporting and
facilitating participatory statistics from
community-level planning right up to
sector and national-level policy
processes. Statistics are being generated
in the design, monitoring and
evaluation, and impact assessment of
development interventions.Through
describing policy, programme and
project research, Who Counts? provides
impetus for a step change in the
adoption and mainstreaming of
participatory statistics within
international development practice. The
challenge laid down is to foster
institutional change on the back of the
methodological breakthroughs and
philosophical commitment described in
this book. The prize is a winwin
outcome in which statistics are a part of
an empowering process for local people
and part of a real-time information flow
for those aid agencies and government
departments willing to generate
statistics in new ways.

The Complete Manual of


Small-scale Food Processing
Peter Fellows

Small-scale food processing is


important worldwide. For individual
processors, it is highly accessible as a
start-up business, especially for women;
farmers and fishermen can readily
diversify into processing to increase
their incomes; and high added-value
enables processors to earn an income
from relatively small scales of
production. For policy makers:
small-scale food processing can create
employment, increase food security and
improve nutritional standards.Written
by an experienced food technologist and
author, this book provides
comprehensive technical and business
information on all aspects of
small-scale food processing in a single
text. From how to assess the market, to
primary and secondary processing,
packaging, managing food safety, and
finances, the book covers all the
technical details and up-to-date
information needed by a food processor.
It is written in simple language suitable
for the non-specialist and also for
people who have English as a second
language.

Evaluating an approach to agricultural


technology adoption in Tanzania
Edited by Helene Bie Liller and Ulrik
Lund-Srensen

Food security is an urgent international


priority. However, agricultural extension
methods that relied on imposing
centrally-developed technological
solutions have been ineffective, since
small farmers in developing countries
often cultivate marginal lands, working
under constraints for which these
solutions were not designed. Since 2006,
a flexible agricultural extension
approach has been implemented in
Northern Tanzania, inspired by the
Farmer Field School approach, and
offering farmers a basket of technology
options from which farmers can pick
and choose what serves their needs and
resources best. The focus is on
extending improved low-cost farming
techniques adaptable to local
conditions in a pragmatic and flexible
process. The interventions are locally
known as RIPAT,have received financial
and technical support from the
Rockwool Foundation. Farmers Choice
outlines the RIPAT intervention, and
examines how effective it has been.This
evaluation should be read by all those
interested in improving the food security
and incomes of poor farmers in the
Global South.

Livestock Emergency
Guidelines and Standards
Edited by LEGS

Agricultura

Livestock play a crucial part in peoples


livelihoods throughout the world and
when humanitarian emergencies arise,
rapid assistance is needed to protect
and rebuild the livestock assets of
affected communities. The Livestock
Emergency Guidelines and Standards
(LEGS) are a set of international
guidelines and standards for the design,
implementation and assessment of
livestock interventions to assist people
affected by humanitarian crises. LEGS
expands the commitment in the Sphere
handbook, the Humanitarian Charter
and Minimum Standards in
Humanitarian Response, towards
supporting livelihood assets, by
presenting clear and practical options
for supporting livestock during and
following disasters.LEGS provides
detailed information on a number of
interventions, namely: destocking,
veterinary services, the provision of
feed, the provision of water, livestock
shelter and settlement, and restocking.
Each technical chapter contains
minimum standards, key indicators, and
guidance notes, together with
decision-making tools and a discussion
of key cross-cutting issues.

Edited by Ian Scoones and John

The purpose of this book is to reveal how
agricultural research and extension, far from
being discrete, rational acts, are in fact part of a
process of coming to terms with conflicting
interests and viewpoints, a process in which
choices are made, alliances formed, exclusions
effected, and worldviews imposed.

to rural development scholars, researchers,

H. David Thurston

Small-scale

This analysis of slash/mulch practices from


around the world shows that they have generally
shortened the necessary fallow periods and have
restored degraded soils, thus increasing or
stabilizing yields; allowing small-scale,
resource-poor farmers to compete more
effectively and enabling subsistence farmers to
achieve food security.

Mesfin Wolde Mariam


This book sets out to demonstrate that the
subsistence production system, with the
disincentives of oppression and exploitation
which keeps peasants and their families
permanently at barely subsistence level without
any means of averting or coping with the
consequences of crop failure, is the system that
creates famine in time of peace.

Women Feeding Cities analyses the roles of


women and men in urban food production and is

Building Back Better

Delivering people-centred housing


reconstruction at scale
Edited by Michal Lyons and Theo
Schilderman

The devastating impact of disasters on


the worlds population is on the
increase, influenced by climate change,
urbanization, and persistent high levels
of poverty, among other factors. There is
a growing demand for reconstruction at
scale. This book asks whether
large-scale reconstruction can be
participatory and developmental; can
rebuilding be truly people-centred,
contributing to breaking the cycle of
poverty and dependence? Can
reconstruction reduce peoples
vulnerability to disasters and other
shocks? Building Back Better examines
the context for reconstruction, and
shows how developments in the fields of
housing, participation and livelihoods
have changed and enriched approaches
to reconstruction. It explores the
practice of implementing large-scale
reconstruction of programmes in Sri
Lanka, Pakistan, Indonesia and India.
The book informs policy, programme
design, practice and evaluation. It will
be of interest to agencies involved in
reconstruction and authorities in
countries regularly faced with disasters,
as well as to students, academics and
researchers.

Gender, Roads, and Mobility in


Asia

Rammed Ea

Edited by Jan Davis and Robert


Lambert

Edited by Kyoko Kusakabe

Julian Keable

Poor roads and transport infrastructure


are key factors in the marginalization of
women and other disempowered groups,
but there is little understanding of the
many ways in which a lack of mobility
affects peoples lives. In South-east Asia,
huge strides are being made in highway
development and regional economic
integration. The complex interplay of
factors makes the connections
discovered both interesting and
challenging for study. Do roads
necessarily bring economic
opportunities and prosperity? How does
the possible change in mobility
transform the lives of women and
marginalized groups? How does the
differential impact of these changes on
people depend on geographical, social,
and historical factors and peoples own
capacities to make optimum use of the
new resource? Gender, Roads, and
Mobility in Asia brings together stories
from different points of transformation
and what emerges is a nuanced picture
of how peoples own positions and
capabilities gender, age, ethnicity,
literacy, and education influence the
impact of the infrastructure
development on their lives.This book
should be read by policy makers,
transportation planners, development
practitioners and researchers.

A practical guide for relief workers

Engineering in Emergencies is a hugely


successful practical handbook for all
relief workers involved in giving
humanitarian assistance. It provides the
information needed to implement an
effective engineering response in the
aftermath of an emergency. The second
edition of Engineering in Emergencies
maintains the practical content of the
first edition but has been revised and
updated to reflect developments in
humanitarian relief in recent years. The
combination of 'hard' topics, such as
water and sanitation, and 'soft' topics,
such as managerial skills and personal
effectiveness, has been retained from
the original edition and the book
expanded to include two new chapters
on security and telecommunications.
The new second edition will be available
both as a book and as a handy CD-ROM,
especially designed to be light and
easily portable for relief workers in the
field. Engineering in Emergencies is
developed in collaboration with the
agency RedR - Engineers for Disaster
Relief, based in Westminster.

Rammed Earth Structures


A Code of Practice

Julian Keable and Rowland Keable

Ramming earth has been a method of


construction for centuries in many parts
of the world and the technique can
produce buildings that are strong,
durable, safe and desirable. Because
earth is an abundant and cheap
resource, rammed earth buildings are
often very economical. To achieve the
best results the right techniques for the
selection and testing of soils must be
used to protect walls from water
damage and shrinkage. This book aims
to show how high standards can be
achieved and the criteria on which
rammed earth structures and building
techniques can be judged. Since the fi rst
edition of this book was published, the
standards described in Rammed Earth
Structures has been adopted as a
Building Standard in Zimbabwe. Further
progress is being made extending the
use of rammed earth as an offi cially
sanctioned building material across all
SADC countries. This book is now
therefore becoming an important guide
and resource for those wishing to
employ this economical and low-carbon
building material in the construction of
public as well as private buildings in
Africa and elsewhere.

Looking back at reconstruction and


disaster risk reduction in housing
Edited by Theo Schilderman and
Eleanor Parker

Huge levels of aid are spent on


reconstructing housing after disasters.
Have these houses withstood the test of
time and hazard? Just as important from
the point of view of their owners, has the
reconstruction process played a part in
restoring their livelihoods and social
networks? Unfortunately, aid agencies
rarely go back to assess the impact of
reconstruction in the longer term. The
research upon which Still Standing? is
based has done just that. Agencies that
undertook projects 335 years ago in
countries throughout Asia and Latin
America have gone back to record
changes and to interview beneficiaries,
builders, authorities and other agencies
in their project areas.This book
describes the stories of the project
beneficiaries and how their houses have
changed, within contexts that have kept
changing too. Still Standing? is essential
reading for architects and engineers
involved in humanitarian fieldwork as
well as students and researchers
concerned with disaster risk reduction.

Sustainable Cities

Local Solutions in the Global South


Edited by Mlanie Robertson

As urbanization, environmental
degradation, and poverty become
increasingly urgent problems,
understanding the links between
sustainability and poverty reduction is
imperative. A sustainable urban future
for all requires raising the quality of life
of the most vulnerable. Existing at the
margins of urban life, low-income
residents of cities in the global south
are subject to numerous environmental
burdens and are too often excluded from
mainstream development and planning.
In the face of these challenges,
communities have proven to be
remarkably resilient and innovative.
This book attempts to show how this
potential can be harnessed, by
showcasing sustainable solutions
developed by the urban poor themselves
and present the findings of participatory
action research projects funded by
IDRCs ECOPOLIS. The studies, conducted
in the growing urban and peri-urban
areas of Peru, Senegal, Bangladesh,
Ethiopia, the Philippines,Thailand, and
the Democratic Republic of Congo,
outline concrete strategies for
sustainable urban living and design,
developed in partnership with low
income city dwellers.Published in
association with IDRC.

The book covers the processes of harvesting and

construction such as bridges and retaining walls.
Key areas of preservation and jointing are
addressed in detail and there are illustrations
throughout.

Two alternative approaches to large scale factory


production are considered: firstly, the
manufacture of Portland cement, or material of
comparable quality, in much smaller kilns, and,
secondly, the upgrading of village-scale
technology, based on lime and pozzolanas.

A guide to strategic planning


Kevin Tayler, Jonathan Parkinson and
Jeremy Colin
This book shows how unified urban sanitation
planning is a vital weapon in the war against
disease and as a text for infrastructure planning
courses. It goes beyond simplistic formulae to
suggest ways in which formal plans, market
forces and actions at the local level can be
brought together to provide a viable response to
sanitation problems.

This book explores the inter-relations between


gender, poverty, and mobility, especially in the
context of transportation development. It brings
together stories in a nuanced picture of how
peoples own positions and capabilities gender,
age, ethnicity, literacy, and education influence
their lives.

Emergency Market Mapping


and Analysis Toolkit
People, markets and emergency
response
Mike Albu

Markets are a crucial component of how


people survive. Understanding how
markets are disrupted in emergencies is
critical to any analysis of hunger, and to
food and livelihood security. The
Emergency Market Mapping and
Analysis Toolkit (EMMA) is a guidance
manual to assist front-line staff to make
rapid assessments of market systems in
the first few weeks of a crisis. Its
purpose is to improve early response
planning so that resources are used
effectively, and so that opportunities are
not missed to bolster future recovery in
the local economy. This toolkit can help
prevent lasting damage to the
livelihoods, jobs and businesses on
which peoples long-term security
depends through practical steps to
understand the important market
aspects of an emergency situation, and
communicate this knowledge promptly
and effectively to decision-makers. Also
available in French.

Minimum Economic Recovery


Standards
The SEEP Network

The Minimum Economic Recovery


Standards (MERS) sponsored by SEEP
represent a consensus across agencies
engaged in economic recovery and
development on what constitutes an
effective and appropriate response to
help disaster-affected populations gain
fair access to viable economic
opportunities, allowing them to regain
their livelihoods with dignity. In order to
ensure sustained and long-term
economic recovery from crisis, MERS
needs to become an integral part of the
development and implementation of
humanitarian assistance. As the Sphere
Guidelines are common standards and
do not address economic recovery
programming, the MERS were developed
to address this gap. The standards
highlight strategies designed to promote
financial services, productive assets,
employment, and enterprise
development among livelihoods in areas
affected by conflict or disaster. In
putting forth these standards, SEEP aims
to improve the capabilities and
accountability of humanitarian and
economic practitioners.

Toward Resilience

A guide to disaster risk reduction and


climate change adaptation
Marilise Turnbull, Charlotte Sterrett and
Amy Hilleboe

Toward Resilience is an introductory


resource for development and
humanitarian practitioners working
with populations at risk of disasters
and other impacts of climate change. It
is aimed at program management,
advisory and technical staff of
development and humanitarian
organizations, and seeks to strengthen
staff understanding of the basic
approaches and principals that can be
applied to disaster risk reduction and
climate change adaptation initiatives. It
also provides practical guidance on
how to integrate disaster risk reduction
and climate change adaptation into the
program cycle and adapt activities to a
range of contexts and development and
humanitarian sectors.This guide
includes examples from practitioners
experiences that illustrate good practice
and learning, and suggests tools and
resources that practitioners find useful.
This book is a core resource developed
as part of the Emergency Capacity
Building (ECB) project. The ECB Project is
a collaborative effort comprised of six
agencies: CARE International, Catholic
Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Oxfam,
Save the Children and World Vision
International.

Disaster & Emergency Response


Aiding Peace?

Jonathan Goodhand
Traditionally the primary function of NGOs has
been to mitigate the effects of war; providing
humanitarian aid and protection on the
peripheries of violent conflict. Recently there has
been an increased focus on the impact of
humanitarian aid in general, and to a lesser
extent on the impact of aid on conflict and peace

Its methods are targeted to housing production

high, urgency is acute, and where change and
uncertainty are a way of life. The book shows
that, under these conditions, efficient practice
depends on methods that promote rather than

This book sets out to demonstrate that the
subsistence production system, with the
disincentives of oppression and exploitation
which keeps peasants and their families
permanently at barely subsistence level without
any means of averting or coping with the
consequences of crop failure, is the system that
creates famine in time of peace.

Communicating Financial
Management with Non-finance
People

Performance Management

A handbook for small business banks


and microfinance institutions

A manual for international development


workers

Prinny Anderson

John Cammack

Performance Management equips staff


at financial institutions across
emerging economies with frameworks
and tools to manage people
effectively.To sustain the business of
financial institutions, leaders and
managers must focus on performance.
This means helping staff to maintain
quality, efficiency, productivity,
cost-effectiveness, and ethical business
practices. It also means managing
people and the way they work so that
they handle as many transactions, open
as many deposit accounts, and process
as many high-quality loans and
repayments as they can. This book
covers all areas of performance
management for banking and
microfinance and includes frameworks
and advice in sustaining performance
through training, coaching, incentives,
performance evaluation, career
development, promotion, and
succession planning. This book provides
insights, approaches, and examples
particularly relevant for professionals
in these markets. It should be read by
staff of banks and microfinance
institutions, as well as NGOs and aid
agencies engaged in promoting
microfinance.

Strong financial management skills are


essential to promote high standards in
international development
organizations. Many non-finance people
find numbers and financial techniques
difficult, however, NGO managers and
staff are responsible for sound financial
management and without full
understanding their programmes will be
at best less effective, and at worst
vulnerable to going unfunded. Poor
communication about financial
information, by both finance and
non-finance people, often seems to
cause a block. This book helps people
speak and write financial information
better, avoiding jargon, and preventing
listeners from switching off. It explains
why messages about finance may not be
received as they were intended when
working cross-culturally and outlines
how information can be tailored to
different audiences and how to improve
understanding and collaboration
between finance and non-finance
people. It shoud be read by non-finance
and finance managers and staff within
non-profit organizations
internationally, as well as other
organizations.

Savings Groups reach those rarely


served by mainstream financial
institutions.Maximum transparency, a
profitable structure for saving, access to
small loans and an annual lump sum of
capital are the hallmarks of the savings
group methodology. The outcome:
empowered groups, made up mostly of
women, who manage themselves as tiny
financial institutions. Today there are
savings groups in 60 countries with
more than 6 million members, the result
of initiatives carried out by dozens of
international and local NGOs. What are
the costs, required inputs, and
anticipated outreach of these groups?
How does replication take place? How
sustainable are the groups? Is it
feasible to integrate financial and
non-financial services? Are linkages to
the formal system desirable? What is
the impact of groups on members and
their households? How can performance
be managed? This book addresses
issues, not from the perspective of the
financial institution, but in support of
group members and savers who are
managing their own financial
services.This book is essential reading
for all those concerned with extending
financial services to the poor.

regions. This volume describes the difficulties
faced by the Inter-American Development Bank
since the 1960s and its role and new objectives

reviews the policies promoting appropriate
technology and identifies positive programmes of
action that could be instituted at a national level.

When Aid is No Help

How projects fail, and how they could

John Madeley
The poorest often lose out in aid projects
because they are not aware of their possibilities,
and this is where non-governmental
organizations can play a role. The official aid
effort has the potential to help the poorest but
it needs to change and become more appropriate
to their needs. The book suggests what changes
are needed.

This book describes the experiences of a range of
enterprises, banks and other agencies with
partnership finance. There is a wide range of
methodologies through which such finance can
be delivered to the owners of these enterprises,
and recovered, in a way that is profitable for the
businesses and self-sustaining for the financing
institutions.

Our Money, Our Movement

Building a poor peoples credit union


Alana Albee and Nandasiri Gamage
This book illustrates how financial services can
be controlled and managed by the poor, rather
than delivered to them, an approach which has
been a fundamental tenet of the credit union
movement. This is essential reading for
development agency staff, and others either
interested in people's movements or involved in
credit and savings initiatives.

Climate Change and


Threatened Communities

Community-based Adaptation to
Climate Change

Edited by A. Peter Castro, Dan Taylor


and David W. Brokensha

Edited by Jonathan Ensor, Rachel


Berger and Saleemul Huq

Global climate change


disproportionately affects rural people
and indigenous groups, but their rights,
knowledge, and interests concerning it
are generally unacknowledged. Shifts in
precipitation, cloud cover, temperature,
and other climatic patterns alter their
livelihood pursuits and cultural
landscapes, accentuating their existing
social and economic marginalization.
Planners and researchers of climate
change mitigation and adaptation must
take into account the knowledge and
capacity of rural people, and engage
them as active participants in the design
and governance of interventions.This
book documents the capacities and
constraints to be encountered among
communities facing changing climates.
It explores human interactions in
environments ranging from subarctic
tundra to equatorial rain forest, from
oceanic lagoons to inland mountains. It
is important reading for policy makers
and academics in climate change
adaptation, anthropology and
development studies.

As climate becomes less predictable and


extreme weather events become more
frequent, there is an urgent need for
support that will help communities to
prepare and adapt to changing
conditions. This support is needed at the
local level as well as the national, and
must be framed by appropriate policy
that secures real benefits for those most
at risk. 'Community-based adaptation'
(CBA) has been extensively piloted by the
NGO community to analyse and
understand the impacts of climate
change. It is vital that development
practice on the ground, as well as the
knowledge and capacity of those most
affected, keeps pace with lessons that
have emerged from more than a decade
of action and research. This book's
findings reflect on experiences of CBA in
practice to frame lessons for adaptation
planning in developing countries and
deepen understanding of CBA among
researchers, students and practitioners
with an interest in climate change
adaptation.

Models for achieving energy access for


the worlds poor
Raffaella Bellanca, Ewan Bloomfield
and Kavita Rai

Access to modern energy services


remains low or non-existent for
approximately 2.8 billion of the worlds
population. Energy practitioners are
facing the challenge of delivering access
to modern energy services where poverty
and lack of infrastructure makes it most
difficult. Rising awareness about
climatic change and the notion of energy
security for future generations are also
being channelled into the debate. This
book provides an overview of existing
energy delivery systems, as well as a
guide on the key issues integral to the
success or failure of energy programmes
in middle- and low-income countries. It
consider how markets develop, which
services are pivotal in supporting the
process, and what overarching factors
enable change to take place, providing
practical guidance on how to replicate
and scale up the successful delivery of
energy to the very poor.

A Handbook of Small-scale
Energy Technologies

Poor People's Energy Outlook


2013

Edited by Neil Noble

Practical Action

Practical Action has long been


recognised as a leading authority on
energy access, with decades of
development programme and project
experience upon which to base its policy
and practice recommendations. A
Handbook of Small-scale Energy
Technologies collects together in a
single handy volume the best of
Practical Actions briefing papers on the
generation, delivery and use of energy.
From decentralized energy solutions
such as micro-hydro to improved
wood-burning stoves, the briefs are
based on technologies adopted
successfully in a range of countries and
over many years. Each of the briefings
presented in this book has been drawn
up by technical experts in the subject
and incorporates the lessons acquired
from many years of learning and review.

In many countries poor peoples energy


access is yet to be given sufficient
priority and fails to be acknowledged as
a key enabler in improving health,
education, and other community
services. As a contribution to creating a
new energy narrative, the Poor peoples
energy outlook (PPEO) highlights what
matters to poor people. It prioritizes
their perspectives and those of
practitioners working with them. PPEO
2013 focuses on delivering energy at
community level, illustrating the
difference that improved energy services
and supply can make to health,
education and infrastructure, including
access to water, and street lighting. The
report makes the case for energy for
community services; encouraging
greater investment in, and integration
of, this often neglected area of energy
provision and will be of interest to
anyone seeking to understand better the
interaction between energy access and
community services, both energy sector
professionals and development
practitioners alike.

temperatures, sea level rise, flooding
and drought. Far from behaving as
victims, however, they use the assets
and resources at their disposal to adapt
and survive. How can agencies assist
local communities adapting to change?
By what mechanisms can communities
make the most of emerging information?
Can effective community-based
approaches be scaled up?
Understanding Adaptation to Climate
Change demonstrates that although
communities adaptation strategies may
be varied and depend on local context,
social networks play a pivotal role in
accessing appropriate climate
knowledge and resources and
communicating useful approaches to
other communities. The key activities of
reducing vulnerability, fostering
resilience and developing the capacity
to experiment and learn are combined
as appropriate. This book is essential
reading for NGO practitioners, students
and government and NGO policy makers
who wish to gain an understanding of
what adaptation means in theory and
practice.

increasingly inadequate and securing adaptive
capacity becomes more urgent. This book should
be read by donor agencies, policy makers, NGO
practitioners, and academics of development

in the context of new approaches in local and
global Plant Genetic Resource (PGR)
management by both the formal and informal

This book deals with a wide range of current


development issues relating to subjects including
community management, groundwater, health
and disease, institutional development, irrigation,
sanitation, solid waste management, water
quality, water sources, water supply and water
treatment.

Truly integrated pest management (IPM) is not


possible without women; nevertheless, few
publications are available. This wide-ranging
book introduces many of the issues, such as
reasons for women's involvement (or lack of it)
in projects as well as examples of
gender-sensitive extension programmes, and
health aspects involved.

Land reform and sustainable agriculture


Edited by Nigel Dudley, John Madeley and

Links the issues of sustainable agriculture and
land reform. When farmers own their land they
are likely to produce more food and to farm
sustainably. Large increases in food output occur
when farmers are given land under agrarian
reform programmes.

The contributions relate to issues such as


management vis-a-vis small scale mining focusing
on environmental, health and safety, social and
gender issues, and offer a multitude of issues and
their solutions relating to small-scale mining
which could form the basis of an agenda for

Community Well-being in
Biocultural Landscapes

Grass Roots Injury Prevention

Bas Verschuuren, Suneetha M.


Subramanian and Wim Hiemstra

Diana Samarakkody, Elizabeth Davis


and Rod McClure

Approaches and Methods for Assessing


Water- and Sanitation-Related Hygiene
Practices

There is a growing recognition that


living well must go beyond economic
and material plenty to encompass
social and spiritual well-being. But what
do we understand by these wider
aspects of well-being? Community
Well-being in Biocultural Landscapes
provides an introduction to the concept
of human well-being as it relates to
international rural development and
conservation policy and practice. It
demonstrates that well-being is
understood and managed in a variety of
ways in different cultures but also
across the geographical scales at which
decision-making processes take place,
from the local, to regional, national and
international scales. This book shows
how community well-being can be
measured using indicators chosen by
local people to reflect the worldviews of
their culture. It provides a unifying
approach that is flexible enough to be
used by conservation and rural
development workers.This book is
important reading for the staff of
international aid and conservation
agencies, for students of international
development and those exploring
concepts of well-being.

Books about injury prevention tend to


explain only the principles and leave it
to the practitioner to apply them in the
course of their everyday interactions.
Thus there is a large gap, between what
works in principle and how to make it
work in practice. The purpose of this
book is to translate the principles of
injury prevention to the specific
circumstances that community workers
face.
The GRIP Guide contains eight modules.
The first module gives an overview of the
principles of injury prevention and
safety promotion. Modules two through
six describe how to address the five
categories / types of injuries (burns,
falls, drowning, transport injuries,
poisoning). Module seven provides a
generic approach that covers other
unintentional injuries and module eight
deals with the response to intentional
injuries (violence).
This guide takes the form of a series of
exercises that reader can use when
working with community members to
promote community participation and
intersectoral collaboration as a means
of achieving a safe environment.

Hygiene Evaluation
Procedures

This handbook provides practical


guidelines for evaluating water and
sanitation related hygiene practices for
the purposes of project planning,
monitoring or impact assessment. The
main focus, therefore, is on the practical
concerns of field personnel working in
water supply, sanitation, and health /
hygiene education projects. It is also
designed to make qualitative research
skills accessible to practitioners with
little or no previous training in social
sciences and emphasizes how to gather,
review, and interpret qualitative
information. The use of a variety of
sources and methods is advocated as
the best way to obtain complete and
reliable information on the issues under
study.

Appropriate Food Packaging

Candlemaking for Profit

Materials and methods for small


businesses

A practical guide for small-scale


producers

Peter Fellows and Barrie Axtell

Robert Aley

Food manufacturers operating on a


small to medium scale face direct
competition from the large-scale food
sector whose economies of scale, better
presentation and powerful marketing
can endanger the future of smaller
businesses. High quality packaging not
only helps to keep products in good
condition it lies at the very heart of food
presentation and customer appeal. It is
thus an area of vital importance for any
small to medium scale food
manufacturers competing in today's
marketplace. Appropriate Food
Packaging is a compendium of
packaging materials and cost-effective
methods that can be applied at a small
to medium scale in developing
countries. This book helps
manufacturers to face the challenges
that improving their packaging systems
present, including assessing whether
increased sales will justify the
investment costs, and the very real
difficulties faced in many developing
countries of sourcing suitable
packaging materials. The economic,
operational and human resource
implications of changes in packaging
methods are considered, as too are the
potentially negative environmental
effects of modern food packaging.

Candlemaking is a traditional craft


which can be converted into a modern
small business with viable markets in
most countries around the world. This
book includes instructions on how to
determine the feasibility of a
candlemaking business, and advises on
essential business planning. It gives
detailed and specific guidance in the
critical areas of pricing, marketing and
selling. Candlemaking for Profit covers
the various materials and methods used
in candlemaking. Finding workshop
space is also covered, with information
about costs of premises, workshop
layout, stock control and safety. The
book explains how to keep ahead
through design and innovation and
includes advice on how to generate
creative ideas, respond to market trends
and safeguard intellectual property.
This is a simple and clear practical
guide for those who are looking for a
business start-up or who want to
convert their candlemaking hobby into a
profitable small business, whether
living in an economically rich or
developing country.

explore the wider socioeconomic
aspects including gender dimensions,
environmental issues, legal and tenure
regulations, relations with large-scale
mining operations, and human rights
and conflict issues including the role of
so-called 'blood diamond' in the
war-torn states of Sierra Leone and
Liberia.

There is no reason why a home-made tool should

repaired or replaced at little cost. Fifty years ago
it was common practice for carpenters in Europe
to make their own tools. It is still done today in
some eastern countries, and to a lesser extent in
the west.

Contribution to Change

An approach to evaluating the role of


intervention in disaster recovery

Feminists in Development
Organizations
Change from the margins

Roger Few, Daniel McAvoy, Marcela


Tarazona and Vivien Margaret Walden

Edited by Rosalind Eyben and Laura


Turquet

As the number of people affected by


disasters has risen, so have the
expectations placed on humanitarian
agencies by donors, the public and the
affected populations themselves.
Agencies must now provide evidence of
impact of their interventions. But
applying conventional evaluation
methods can pose problems. How can
we assess the difference that
intervention makes? Is it ethical to
consign some disaster-affected
communities to control groups? How
feasible is it to collect baseline data
among people who have just been
traumatized? This guide provides a
reliable and practical method for
identifying the contribution an agency
makes to changes to peoples lives in the
recovery period following disasters.
It outlines 11 steps that take evaluators
through designing quantitative and
qualitative methods through to
collecting field data and developing a
narrative of evidence and change.

Feminists in Development Organizations


arises from a collaborative project of
feminists working inside the head
offices of multilateral organizations,
government aid agencies and
international NGOs.The personal stories
in this book show that these feminists
are tempered radicals positioned on
the border of the development agencies
that employ them. It is a place where
they are neither fully one thing nor
another: neither fully paid-up,
pen-pushing bureaucrats, nor full-blown
feminist activists on the barricades.
Nevertheless, feminist bureaucrats see
their work as urgent, essential and a
necessary contribution to global efforts
to achieve womens rights. This book
shows how feminists can build effective
strategies to influence development
organizations to foster greater
understanding and forge more effective
alliances for social change. This book is
aimed at staff of development
organizations and students and
researchers concerned with the politics
of gender mainstreaming.

Anne Hope and Sally Timmell

Training for Transformation is an


approach to community organization
encompassed in three books which
enables people to read their reality and
write their own history using a
combination of group processes,
socio-economic analysis and
organizational development processes.
Since its inception 40 years ago,
Training for Transformation has been
put into practice in over 60 countries
globally. But how have people been
using these materials in their
communities over this period? Training
for Transformation in Practice brings
together the experiences of activists who
have adapted these materials to their
own social and cultural contexts. The
book describes the roots of Training for
Transformation in peoples struggles in
the global South to gain political and
economic independence and to
overcome poverty. It outlines the
theoretical origins of the approach and
also includes Impact Assessment Tools,
developed by activists who have used
the training in their work.The book is
inspiring reading for students of adult
education and community organizers.

Understanding Organizational
Sustainability through African
Proverbs
Insights for Leaders and Facilitators
Chiku Malunga

African cultural heritage, passed on


from generation to generation has been
the source of guidance for African
communities in times of peace,
uncertainty, birth, life and death. In this
book the power of traditional wisdom
contained in African proverbs is
directed at organizational development
and change. The result is a fresh new
perspective on organizational
management with important lessons for
leaders, consultants, volunteers and
expatriates working or preparing to
work in Africa. Rooted in proven
practice, the book specifically
addresses the needs of leaders and
consultants in African organizations
seeking to implement performance
improvement and organizational
change, and contains proverb-driven
assessment templates for use in
workshop situations.

A practical guide

Who Counts?

The power of participatory statistics


Edited by Jeremy Holland

Edited by Sarah C White and Asha


Abeyasekera

Human development may encompass


social, cultural and spiritual facets as
well as economic improvement, and
development organizations are
beginning to recognize this fact. But
building into programming a wider
understanding of development throws
up a number of questions: how do our
organizations define wellbeing and
quality of life? What do target
communities in the global north or
south mean by a quality of life? How can
we measure change in wellbeing, and
attribute it to our programming?
Wellbeing and Quality of Life
Assessment is a practical resource for
people working in social or development
policy and practice who are thinking
about integrating wellbeing or quality of
life in their work in both the global
North and South.The main body of the
book presents different tools that have
been developed and used in social and
development policy and practice,
written by NGO professionals. These
chapters outline the inspiration behind
their approach, how it works, what has
been learnt through it, and issues and
dilemmas that remain.

Local people can generate their own


numbers and the statistics that result
are powerful for themselves and can
influence policy. Development
practitioners are supporting and
facilitating participatory statistics from
community-level planning right up to
sector and national-level policy
processes. Statistics are being generated
in the design, monitoring and
evaluation, and impact assessment of
development interventions.Through
describing policy, programme and
project research, Who Counts? provides
impetus for a step change in the
adoption and mainstreaming of
participatory statistics within
international development practice. The
challenge laid down is to foster
institutional change on the back of the
methodological breakthroughs and
philosophical commitment described in
this book. The prize is a winwin
outcome in which statistics are a part of
an empowering process for local people
and part of a real-time information flow
for those aid agencies and government
departments willing to generate
statistics in new ways.

Coercion and Commitment in


Development NGOs

This study examines whether the existing aid


processes widely used by donors and NGOs are
effective in tackling poverty and exclusion and
shows how the fast changing aid sector has
encouraged the mainstreaming of a managerial
approach that does not admit of any analysis of
power relations or cultural diversity.

Aid, NGOs and the Realities of


Women's Lives
A perfect storm

Edited by Tina Wallace and Fenella


Porter
This book explores how international NGOs are
navigating these rapid changes, changes that
challenge their role and legitimacy, their values,
and their overall purpose. It calls for a
re-examination of theories about change, and a
re-focus on ideas of complexity and feminism
and on learning from past NGO experience.

Assessing the Gender Impact of
Development Projects
Vera Gianotten, Verona Groverman, Edith
van Wilsum and Lida Zuidberg
Gender impact assessment is a way to estimate
the expected impact of an intervention, such as a
development project, on women, and to what
extent the specific interests and needs of various
categories of women will be affected. This book
describes case studies from Burkina Faso, India
and Bolivia which used this method.

Edited by Ton Schouten, Stef Smits and


John Butterworth

Lessons from research in water supply,


sanitation, and hygiene in Ethiopia

Achieving water security remains an


elusive goal yet the benefits of investing
in water, sanitation and hygiene to
achieve basic water security and
alleviate poverty are clear. Households
benefit through a range of livelihood
impacts; economies benefit from greater
economic activity and over the
longer-term, households and economies
benefit through greater resilience to
climate change and shocks. So why are
governments and their development
partners struggling to meet water and
sanitation targets? What factors make it
difficult to sustain services at scale?
And how can policies and plans for
delivering and sustaining services for
poor people be strengthened in the face
of multiple pressures, including climate
change? This book addresses these
questions and draws conclusions for
policy and practice, linking findings
with current international debates on
service delivery in rural areas. This
book should be read by government
agencies, donor organisations and
NGOs, as well as academics and
researchers in the water, sanitation and
hygiene sector. Published in association
with ODI.

Over the past two decades a quiet


revolution has been taking place in the
countryside of China where hundreds of
millions of people have been lifted out
of poverty. This book focuses on some of
the practical actions and clever use of
appropriate technologies which have
been at the heart of this positive
grassroots-driven change in rural Gansu
Province. Key to this has been
mobilizing the population and their
expeditious use of rainwater harvesting
both to dramatically improve crop
yields and provide households with
reliable domestic water supplies.
Challenges such as lack of fuelwood
have been overcome by the development
of simple low-cost solar cookers; the
construction of low-cost greenhouses
allows for the collection of rainwater
and its use in efficient drip irrigation
systems. The real significance of this
case study is that most of the
approaches described are based on
universal principles of sustainable
development.This book is recommended
reading for engineers, planners, staff of
NGOs, academics and students in the
water, energy, and agriculture sectors.

Scaling Up Multiple Use Water


Services
Accountability in public water sector
performance for health and wealth

Barbara van Koppen, Stef Smits,


Cristina Rumbaitis del Rio and John
Thomas

Multiple use water services (MUS) is a


participatory water services approach
that takes account of poor peoples
multiple water needs as a starting point
of planning. Scaling up Multiple Use
Water Services argues that by designing
cost-effective multi-purpose
infrastructure MUS can have a positive
impact on peoples health and
livelihoods. It analyses and explains the
success factors of MUS, using a
framework of accountability for public
service delivery, and it also examines
why there has been resistance against
scaling up MUS. A stronger service
delivery approach can overcome this
resistance, by rewarding more
livelihood outcomes, by fostering
discretionary decision-making power of
local-level staff and by allowing
horizontal coordination.This book
should be read by government and aid
agency policy makers in the WASH and
agriculture sectors, by development
field workers, and by academics,
researchers and students.

The potential of community-led total


sanitation
Edited by Lyla Mehta and Synne Movik

Sanitation remains one of the biggest


development challenges of our time, and
a long neglected issue associated with
taboos and stigma. Despite growing
attention and efforts, many top-down
approaches to sanitation have failed,
reflecting that simply providing people
with a toilet does not necessarily
guarantee its use. The Community-Led
Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach offers
a more promising alternative, focusing
on facilitating a profound change in
peoples behaviour through
participatory techniques. By raising
local peoples awareness of the linkages
between open defecation and disease
through the release of powerful
emotions such as disgust and shame,
they are encouraged to analyse their
own sanitation situation and take
action themselves. The approach has
proved immensely successful, however,
like any development success story
challenges still remain regarding
scaling up with quality, inclusion of the
poorest and sustainability.This book
addresses both the potential and
challenges of CLTS by drawing on
research in Asia as well as experiences
from Africa.

Toilets That Make Compost

Low-cost, sanitary toilets that produce


valuable compost for crops in an African
context
Peter Morgan

Most People in rural Africa do not have


access to safe toilets and their health
and well-being suffers as a
consequence. There is an urgent need for
the construction of simple, low-cost,
affordable toilets that are easy to build
and maintain. Toilets that make
compost provides practical examples of
toilets that, in addition to providing a
safe sanitation option, also recycle the
nutrients in excreta to produce compost.
This compost is valued wherever
wherever households have enough
space to grow fruit and vegetables in
their back gardens; the designs are
suitable for regions where there is no
high water table or prolonged wet
season. This book provides detailed
instructions for constructing a range of
toilets from the simplest and most
affordable to the more sophisticated
ecological toilet.

Aid, NGOs and the Realities of


Women's Lives
A perfect storm

Edited by Tina Wallace and Fenella


Porter

Aid organizations have their origins in a


desire to help the worlds poorest and
most marginalized people but are they
reaching these people? Factors are
coming together that put pressure on
NGOs working in development: the
economic crisis, the growing
conditionality of aid, and increased
competition for funding between NGOs.
This creates a perfect storm driven by a
new language of aid, policies and
procedures leaving poor women behind.
This book explores how international
NGOs are navigating these rapid
changes that challenge their role and
legitimacy, values, and overall purpose.
The writers see a crisis for NGOs as they
are pulled further from those they claim
to work with; they also explore
alternative ways of conceptualizing
development, and of bringing about
improvements for the most marginalized
and increasingly unheard women.
This book is essential reading for
development practitioners and those
working on womens rights, as well as
NGO staff , researchers, and students of
development studies.

Edited by Geraldine Terry

Climate change is often framed as a


problem that needs mainly technical
and economic solutions. Climate Change
and Gender Justice considers how
gender issues are entwined with
peoples vulnerability to the effects of
climate change, and how gender
identities and roles may affect womens
and mens perceptions of the changes.
The vivid case studies in this book show
how women and men in developing
countries are experiencing climate
change and describe their efforts to
adapt their ways of making a living to
ensure survival, often against
extraordinary odds. Contributors also
examine how gender-equality concerns
should be integrated into international
negotiations and agreements on climate
change mitigation and adaptation to
ensure that new policies do not
disadvantage poor women, but rather
deliver them some benefits. No climate
justice without gender justice; the
rallying call by lobbyists at the 2007 UN
Climate Change Conference in Bali
continues to resonate as international
negotiations on how to tackle and adapt
to climate change become more urgent.

Feminists in Development
Organizations
Change from the margins

Edited by Rosalind Eyben and Laura


Turquet

Feminists in Development Organizations


arises from a collaborative project of
feminists working inside the head
offices of multilateral organizations,
government aid agencies and
international NGOs.The personal stories
in this book show that these feminists
are tempered radicals positioned on
the border of the development agencies
that employ them. It is a place where
they are neither fully one thing nor
another: neither fully paid-up,
pen-pushing bureaucrats, nor full-blown
feminist activists on the barricades.
Nevertheless, feminist bureaucrats see
their work as urgent, essential and a
necessary contribution to global efforts
to achieve womens rights. This book
shows how feminists can build effective
strategies to influence development
organizations to foster greater
understanding and forge more effective
alliances for social change. This book is
aimed at staff of development
organizations and students and
researchers concerned with the politics
of gender mainstreaming.

Gender and the Economic


Crisis

Gender, Faith, and


Development

Gender, Roads, and Mobility in


Asia

Edited by Ruth Pearson and Caroline


Sweetman

Edited by Emma Tomalin

Edited by Kyoko Kusakabe

Faith-based organizations have long


been involved in charitable and
development activities. However, the
emerging openness to thinking about
and engaging with religion in
development raises some important
questions. Does religious engagement in
development policy and practice risk
harming already fragile gender
relations? What are the challenges and
opportunities in negotiating the
relationships between religion, gender,
and development? Gender, Faith, and
Development explores in different ways
the relationships between religion,
gender, and development. Subjects
covered include attitudes towards
sexual behaviour in areas with a high
prevalence of HIV and AIDS; household
disputes over the control of income;
constraints on womens time; the
difficulties of introducing Western
models of gender equity to those in
Muslim societies who see feminism as a
threat; and changes in abortion
legislation. This book is essential
reading for academics and researchers
in development, gender, political
science, sociology, or religious studies,
and of interest to development policy
makers and practitioners, voluntary
sector workers, and social movement
activists.

Poor roads and transport infrastructure


are key factors in the marginalization of
women and other disempowered groups,
but there is little understanding of the
many ways in which a lack of mobility
affects peoples lives. In South-east Asia,
huge strides are being made in highway
development and regional economic
integration. The complex interplay of
factors makes the connections
discovered both interesting and
challenging for study. Do roads
necessarily bring economic
opportunities and prosperity? How does
the possible change in mobility
transform the lives of women and
marginalized groups? How does the
differential impact of these changes on
people depend on geographical, social,
and historical factors and peoples own
capacities to make optimum use of the
new resource? Gender, Roads, and
Mobility in Asia brings together stories
from different points of transformation
and what emerges is a nuanced picture
of how peoples own positions and
capabilities gender, age, ethnicity,
literacy, and education influence the
impact of the infrastructure
development on their lives.This book
should be read by policy makers,
transportation planners, development
practitioners and researchers.

The current global economic crisis is


expected to lead to millions more people
being pushed into extreme poverty. The
effects are profoundly different for
women and men, and the existing gender
inequalities and power imbalances
mean that additional problems are
falling disproportionately on those who
are already structurally disempowered
and marginalised. The economic crisis
is the latest element in a complex web of
shocks and longer-term traumas
affecting women, men and their families
in developing countries. These include
food and fuel shocks, changing climatic
conditions, and the HIV pandemic. For
many people living in poverty, these
crises are experienced as one
multifaceted crisis, which has
accentuated alreadyexisting underlying
chronic concerns in both the productive
and the reproductive (care) economies
of the world. While these issues remain
largely invisible to mainstream
economists and policymakers, they are
critical to the development of effective
and sustainable responses to the crisis.
Contributors to this book map the
emerging impact of the economic crisis
on women, men and their families in
different contexts, and suggest policy
and practice changes.

Gender impact assessment is a way to estimate

extent the specific interests and needs of various
categories of women will be affected. This book
describes case studies from Burkina Faso, India

Women and technical innovation


Helen Appleton
Although women are the majority of small-scale
technology users, their technical knowledge and
understanding has largely been overlooked. This
book investigates the contributions of women to
technical innovation at a grassroots level, using
22 case studies of technical innovation by
women in 16 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin
America.

The book shows that the improvement of


product efficiency can be in harmony with
financial gains. It encourages support for women
entrepreneurs to get involved with the technical
aspects of the production process. It aims to
provide basic information on energy saving
options for those involved with the economic
empowerment of micro entrepreneurs.

Deconstructing Development
Discourse

From Poverty to Power

Edited by Andrea Cornwall and Deborah


Eade

Duncan Green

Buzzwords and Fuzzwords

Writing from diverse locations,


contributors critically examine some of
the key terms in current development
discourse. Why should language matter
to those who are doing development?
Surely, there are more urgent things to
do than sit around mulling over
semantics? But language does matter.
Whether emptied of their original
meaning, essentially vacuous, or hotly
contested, the language of development
not only shapes our imagined worlds,
but also justifies interventions in real
peoples lives. If development buzzwords
conceal ideological differences or
sloppy thinking, then the process of
constructive deconstruction makes it
possible to re-examine what have
become catchall terms like civil society
and poverty reduction, or bland
aid-agency terms such as partnership or
empowerment. Such engagement is far
more than a matter of playing word
games. The reflections included here
raise major questions about how we
think about development itself.

How active citizens and effective states


can change the world

Order now

This new edition of From Poverty to


Power has been fully revised and now
includes a new chapter with an in-depth
analysis of the human impact of the
global financial and food crises. From
Poverty to Power argues that a radical
redistribution of power, opportunities,
and assets rather than traditional
models of charitable or government aid
is required to break the cycle of poverty
and inequality. The forces driving this
transformation are active citizens and
effective states. Why active citizens?
Because people living in poverty must
have a voice in deciding their own
destiny and holding the state and the
private sector to account. Why effective
states? Because history shows that no
country has prospered without a state
structure that can actively manage the
development process. There is now an
added urgency: climate change. We need
to build a secure, fair, and sustainable
world within the limits set by scarce
resources and ecological
realities.Published in association with
Oxfam GB.

Community participation or people's


participation in the process of
development has entered into the
development lexicon permanently. New
methods, tools, and approaches
(variously called Participatory Learning
and Action, Participatory Rural
Appraisal or its earlier incarnation
Rapid Rural Appraisal) to enlist people's
participation has been invented,
improvised and developed by
development practitioners all over the
world. This book is a unique exercise in
exploration and synthesis,
demonstrating and documenting the
experiments which have revealed that
the participatory tools, methods and
approaches can be very efficiently used
in several fields of human exploration.
Each chapter, dealing with these issues,
describes both the process followed in
the application of participatory tools
and methods in the respective field and
the synthesis of the theory of
participation with practice as well. This
book will be an invaluable guide to
practitioners, researchers, academics
and students of development economics
and poverty planning.

Into the Unknown

Explorations in development practice


Robert Chambers

Development is about change, and lives


immersed in researching international
development should be prepared for
exploration, for discovering the
unexpected, and for questioning the
direction that development is taking.
Robert Chambers reflects on
experiences, which led him to examine
personal biases and predispositions,
and he challenges readers to examine
the pervasive significance of power in
forming and framing knowledge. Into the
Unknown reflects on the journey of
learning, and encourages readers to
learn from observation, curiosity,
critical feedback, play and fun.
Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and
Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS)
have benefited from sharing practice,
innovations and experience through
participatory workshops. This book
includes tips on how to lead and
convene workshops that can co-generate
knowledge and have an influence. Into
the Unknown will be of interest to
development professionals, including
academics, students, NGO workers and
the staff of international agencies.

Provocations for Development


Robert Chambers

Order now
generated on 06/02/2014

Do we use obscure or fashionable words


to impress our colleagues or win
research proposals? Are many of our
actions against poverty simple, direct
and wrong? Provocations for
Development is an entertaining and
unsettling collection of writings that
questions concepts, conventions and
practices in development. It is made up
of short and accessible writings by
Robert Chambers reflecting on the
evolution of concepts like participation
and of organizations like the World
Bank. Besides provocations, there is
mischief, verse and serious fun. The
book irreverently examines
vocabularies of development and how
words are instruments of power;
challenges concepts of poverty, presents
empowering breakthroughs in the
current explosion of participatory
methodologies; is critical of past and
present procedures and practices in aid;
points to feasible changes for doing
better; touches on values, ethics, gender
and participation, immersions,
hypocrisy, and paradigms; and finally
invites readers to ponder the question
what would it take to eliminate poverty
in the world?

Local people can generate their own


numbers and the statistics that result
are powerful for themselves and can
influence policy. Development
practitioners are supporting and
facilitating participatory statistics from
community-level planning right up to
sector and national-level policy
processes. Statistics are being generated
in the design, monitoring and
evaluation, and impact assessment of
development interventions.Through
describing policy, programme and
project research, Who Counts? provides
impetus for a step change in the
adoption and mainstreaming of
participatory statistics within
international development practice. The
challenge laid down is to foster
institutional change on the back of the
methodological breakthroughs and
philosophical commitment described in
this book. The prize is a winwin
outcome in which statistics are a part of
an empowering process for local people
and part of a real-time information flow
for those aid agencies and government
departments willing to generate
statistics in new ways.

The book offers in-depth discussion about how

transferring knowledge; why are local networks
and intermediaries so important; what can hinder
the communication process; and how may these

This book explores the power dimensions of

participatory ideas to be effective.

This book focuses on participatory


capacity-building in ways that address the
practical needs and strategic interests of the
disadvantaged and disempowered - it examines
how differences in class, ethnicity, race, caste,
religion, age and gender lead to the 'politics of
exclusion'.

past mistakes and myths, and of the continuing
methodological revolution of PRA (participatory
rural appraisal) - the author points towards
solutions.

Women's participation and the impact on their


status has been studied in 35 female and
mixed-sex irrigation groups dispersed over the
country, supported by five different NGOs and
the Grameen Bank. The book describes the
background, methodologies and conclusions to
the studies in detail, with summaries of the
policy implications.

Capacity Development for


Scaling up Decentralized
Energy Access

Decentralized Energy Access


and the Millennium
Development Goals

Elisabeth Clemens, Kamal Rijal and


Minoru Takada

Gwnalle Legros, Kamal Rijal and


Bahareh Seyedi

Micro hydro power is ideally suited to


meeting the energy needs of remote
communities.A national micro hydro
programme has been operating for more
than a decade in Nepal. Similarly a
fuel-wood-conserving cooking stoves
programme has been operating in Nepal
for decades. Capacity development for
scaling up decentralized energy access
programmes describes these two
programmes and takes an in-depth look
at the role of capacity development in
scaling up from pilot projects to
national programmes. Although it takes
considerable upfront public investment
to kick-start capacity development, once
these investments have been made they
can attract substantial financing from
private sources at later programme
stages. It also explores potential future
trends in programme costs and
financing sources. It makes the case for
upfront public investments to develop
national and local capacities for
scaling up rural energy services
delivery, and to catalyse private
financing.

Decentralized, off-grid power supplies


such as micro hydropower can be
perceived as expensive investments by
poor countries like Nepal. Can these
investments be justified by the benefits
that electricity brings to villages in
remote mountainous regions? This book
describes research into the development
gains brought to such villages,
measured in terms of progress towards
achieving the millennium development
goals. Indicators relating to income,
education, gender equality, maternal
and child health and environmental
impact were measured in villages
benefiting from micro hydropower,
compared with neighbouring villages
without an electricity supply.
Decentralized Energy Access and the
Millennium Development Goals
provides conclusive evidence of these
transformative benefits and
recommends that Nepal, and countries
like it, scale up investments in its
microhydropower programme.

Financial Linkages and Strategic


Alliances
Maria Pagura

Despite significant innovations in rural


microfinance over the years, millions of
people around the world still do not
have access to financial services. Can
linkages and strategic alliances between
formal and informal financial
institutions and private firms help
resolve this problem? Drawing on 12
case studies and one review conducted
in 11 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin
America, the authors show how formal
financial institutions and companies
use a variety of less formal, often rural,
organizations to overcome the
information and enforcement problems
of serving rural clients. Research
indicates that these linkages seem to
afford both partners the opportunity to
overcome weaknesses experienced when
working on their own. This book is of
interest to al involved in rural
development, particularly those
concerned with financing economic
development and innovation. This title
is published in association with the
Food and Agriculture Organisation of
the United Nations.

Strengthening Rural
Livelihoods

The impact of information and


communication technologies in Asia
Edited by David J. Grimshaw and
Shalini Kala

Enthusiasm amongst international


development agencies about harnessing
the potential of information and
communications technologies (ICTs) for
development has generated
questionning of the impact and
sustainability of such interventions. By
presenting the findings of research
specifically designed to measure impact
on livelihoods, Strengthening Rural
Livelihoods offers new evidence for the
development benefits of ICTs. The book
asks if ICTs enabled farmers to sell
beyond local markets and at better
prices, and whether there have been
social gains in linking geographically
disparate households and social
networks. The authors have provided
significant new insights into how to
overcome the challenges of
mainstreaming ICTs into rural
livelihoods and more effectively
measuring its effects. This book will
appeal to academics, civil society
organizations, practitioners and
students who are interested in what
works and what doesnt work when
applying ICTs to rural livelihoods.

Supporting Rural Water Supply


Moving towards a Service Delivery
Approach

Water Supply and Sanitation


Services for the Rural Poor
The Gram Vikas Experience

Harold Lockwood and Stef Smits

Pamela Keirns

Collectively, billions of dollars have


been invested in the provision of rural
water supply systems in developing
countries over the past three decades.
Although progress is being made and
rates of coverage are increasing, users
often find that, once installed, water
supply systems are poorly maintained
and eventually break down, leaving
them with an unreliable and disrupted
water supply. Supporting Rural Water
Supply takes a critical look and asks
why we have been unable to provide a
sustainable water service to rural
people for so long? What are the critical
success factors in the areas where there
has been good progress? How can we
support the adoption of a service
delivery approach to rural water supply
one that moves beyond implementing
infrastructure projects to delivering a
reliable and indefinite service? This
book brings together findings from 13
country studies which were carried out
as part of a global learning initiative
Sustainable Services at Scale, or
Triple-S. It offers insights into ways
countries and individual organisations
can move towards a service delivery
approach step by step. Published in
association with IRC.

Safe drinking water near to the home


and adequate household sanitation
save poor households time, reduce
illness and increase a sense of well
being and dignity. Gram Vikas, a
non-government organization working in
one of the poorest states in India,
recognized this key role and encouraged
villages to agree to a pact - water and
sanitation for every house in the village
- in return for labour and a percentage
of the costs.
Fundamental to the process was a
growing sense of empowerment, so that
once the building was finished whole
villages were ignited to drive their own
development projects. This book
describes how Gram Vikas engaged with
new villages and carried out the
programme, how costs were met by the
households, government and donors,
and the resulting impacts on
health,education and livelihoods.
Finally the question is asked: can this
international award-winning approach
be scaled - up to increase sustainable
coverage of water and sanitation and
combat poverty worldwide?

The ITDG Experience

Rural manufacturing in sub-Saharan


Africa

Derek Miles

David Poston

Originally prepared for an Expert Meeting


organised by UNESCO in 1980, this paper
outlines Intermediate Technology's basic
approach to development work; and assesses the
lessons learned from 15 years' experience in
development activities (Published in the ITDG
Occasional Paper series).

This book examines the contribution of rural


manufacturing in central African economies,
particularly as a service to the agricultural base.
The author argues that self-sustaining small-scale
rural workshops are vital to rural development.

Bangladesh

Whose ideas, whose interests?


Geoffrey Wood

participation by landless men and women in
agricultural growth; the social implications of
rural works and fish culture programmes; rural
institutions and poverty alleviation; and broad

Beyond Farmer First

Rural peoples knowledge, agricultural


research and extension practice
Edited by Ian Scoones and John
Thompson
The purpose of this book is to reveal how
agricultural research and extension, far from
being discrete, rational acts, are in fact part of a
process of coming to terms with conflicting
interests and viewpoints, a process in which
choices are made, alliances formed, exclusions
effected, and worldviews imposed.

This book makes the case for upfront public


investments to develop national and local
capacities for scaling up rural energy services
delivery, and to catalyse private financing.An
invaluable guide for decision makers,
development practitioners, policy analysts, and
programme planners both in the developing and
developed world.

Questioning the dominant approaches taken by


many professionals concerned with rural
development the theme of this book is that 'we' the professionals - are much of the problem.
New frontiers could be opened by reversing
many ideas and practices.

Guidelines on integrated planning for rural


water supply

This book shows how research in Southern


Africa has shed light on why conventional wells
and boreholes fail, on the potential of the
groundwater resource to support production
through improved siting and selection of more
appropriate well designs, and on the positive
impacts and some problems that can emerge at
productive water points.

This book traces the evolution of transport


theory and policy and the new 'needs led'
approach, with examples from recent studies.
The authors suggest areas of intervention to
reduce the transport burden on the rural poor.

Rural Buildi

The text defines 'qualitative' in this context;


surveys the types of information that
practitioners of rural developing communities
need to assemble; describes the main general
techniques in use; recommends areas of potential
improvements; and looks to the future of
qualitative enquiry in the light of present trends
and likely information needs.

From Clients to Citizens

Voices from the Margins

Whose Reality Counts?

Allison Mathie and Gordon Cunningham

Roger Lewins, Stuart Coupe and


Francis Murray

Robert Chambers

Communities worldwide act on their


own initiative, drawing on their own
resources of leadership and solidarity,
and in spite of poverty, to achieve their
own goals. Development practitioners
have too often viewed poor communities
as helpless and disadvantaged, and
have encouraged their dependency. Yet if
instead communities are recognized as
having social and cultural as well as
material assets, and these are what help
them to overcome obstacles, then their
capacity to negotiate external
assistance on their own terms can be
strengthened. From the Moroccan
villages that secured irrigation
infrastructure with the help of returning
migrants, to the Egyptian youth leaders
who wanted a soccer pitch for their
village, and the indigenous womens
cooperative in Ecuador that now exports
medicinal plants, this book describes
case studies of communities that first
built on their own assets, before seeking
assistance from outside. What are the
common factors that help all these
communities mobilize? Do outside
organizations have a role to play when
communities take charge of their own
development? From Clients to Citizens is
aimed at community workers,
researchers and policy makers who
want to take a fresh look at community
development.

In this sequel to Rural Development:


Putting the last first Robert Chambers
argues that central issues in
development have been overlooked, and
that many past errors have flowed from
domination by those with power.
Through analysing experience - of past
mistakes and myths, and of the
continuing methodological revolution of
PRA (participatory rural appraisal) - the
author points towards solutions. In
many countries, urban and rural people
alike have shown an astonishing ability
to express and analyse their local,
complex and diverse realities which are
often at odds with the top-down realities
imposed by professionals. The author
argues that personal, professional and
institutional change is essential if the
realities of the poor are to receive
greater recognition. Whose Reality
Counts? presents a radical challenge to
all concerned with development,
whether practitioners, researchers or
policy-makers, in all organizations and
disciplines, and at all levels from
fieldworkers to the heads of
agencies.This is a thought-provoking
book and it would interest all those
concerned with the realities of the poor
in the developing world.

Describes the work of Practical Action in


introducing consensus-based planning
approaches in villages that are poor
even by Bangladesh standards, where 90
per cent of people live under the poverty
line and over 60 per cent are illiterate.
These methods work on raising the voice
and confidence of the poor at the local
level within their communities, and the
results have been spectacular: opening
up new income generation and resource
management and influencing
opportunities for marginalized
communities in flood-prone areas.
Highly useful in countries that reject the
role of NGOs in governance or human

Poverty, aid and technology
Ian Smillie
Mastering the Machine Revisited is about the
connection between poverty, aid and technology.
It is about the search driven today by greater
extreme poverty than has ever been known, and
by a realization that the technologies applied to
the problem have severe limitations.

Focusing attention human creativity and social


interaction, and building on the view that these
innate human characteristics are central forces in
the evolution of local agricultural systems, this
volume explores the patterns of farmers'
individual and joint behaviour in the generation,
adaption and spread of new agricultural
practices.

Empowerment in especially difficult

Gary Barker and Felicia Knaul
This book offers practical approaches to improve

urban-based girls and young women, by
presenting successful projects which clearly
demonstrate what can be done on a broad range
of fronts, and answering: what do they need,and
what kind of programmes have been successful
in meeting those needs?

Development professionals now need new


approaches and methods for interacting, learning
and knowing. Through analysing experience - of
past mistakes and myths, and of the continuing
methodological revolution of PRA (participatory
rural appraisal) - the author points towards
solutions.

Provocations for Development

Transforming Development

Robert Chambers

Women, poverty and politics


Margaret Snyder

Provocations for Development is an entertaining


and unsettling collection of writings that
questions concepts, conventions and practices in
development. It is made up of short and
accessible writings by Robert Chambers, many
from the past ten years and some from earlier.

This books shows that women can be


instrumental in expanding and democratizing
national economies: creating wealth and family
well-being. Through a history of UNIFEM, the
author shows how the large-scale investments of
governments, the World Bank, the United
Nations and other organizations can become
both more effectively and gender-sensitive.

From Poverty to Power

How active citizens and effective states


can change the world
Duncan Green
From Poverty to Power argues that a radical
redistribution of power, opportunities, and assets
rather than traditional models of charitable or
government aid is required to break the cycle of
poverty and inequality. The forces driving this
transformation are active citizens and effective
states. Published in association with Oxfam GB.

The Sustainability Handbook


for Design & Technology
Teachers
Edited by Ian Capewell

Most people are now aware of their


eco-footprint and the need to cut carbon
emissions. Local councils have set up
recycling schemes and people are
encouraged to reduce travel emissions,
but this is not enough. Designers need to
incorporate sustainability
considerations into their work, and this
book contains both justification and
inspiration for Design and Technology
teachers wishing to introduce
sustainable design into their lessons.
The authors introduce the big issues,
link climate change and poverty to
sustainable design, and encourage us
all to develop as active citizens taking
on our environmental responsibilities.
Each of the six Rs - rethink, refuse,
reduce, reuse, repair and recycle - is
considered in relation to each focus
area, with suggested activities and
sources of further information.
The handbook has been produced by
Practical Action in collaboration with
the Centre for Alternative Technology.

Sustainable Cities

Local Solutions in the Global South


Edited by Mlanie Robertson

As urbanization, environmental
degradation, and poverty become
increasingly urgent problems,
understanding the links between
sustainability and poverty reduction is
imperative. A sustainable urban future
for all requires raising the quality of life
of the most vulnerable. Existing at the
margins of urban life, low-income
residents of cities in the global south
are subject to numerous environmental
burdens and are too often excluded from
mainstream development and planning.
In the face of these challenges,
communities have proven to be
remarkably resilient and innovative.
This b
