Bertus Haverkort, Katrien Van 't Hooft, Wim Hienstra, Katrien Van t Hooft, Wim HiemstraISBN: 1842773348;
The projects represented in this volume explore the notion of endogenous development, or "development from within." It demonstrates how development can be based on locally available resources, knowledge, values and leadership institutions; how therecan be genuinely local determination of development options; and how the benefits of development within local areas and communities can be fostered. The remarkable experiments described in this collection show the rich benefits that can emerge from innovative projects that build on local resources, expand and spread local knowledge, maximize local control, respond to locally felt needs, and, with a selective use of external resources as well, identify development niches and opportunities. This volume will be of interest to development practitioners, anthropologists and sociologists.
