Description - Reluctant Partners? Non-Governmental Organizations, the State and Sustainable Agricultural Development by Anthony Bebbington

Insufficiences and inequities in food production and supply in poor countries need to be addressed as problems of both agricultural resource management and rural democratization. Reluctant Partners? combines comprehensive empirical insights into NGO's work in agriculture with wider considerations of their relations with the state and their contribution to democratic pluralism. This overview volume for the Non-Governmental Organizations series contextualizes the case study material in the three regional volumes on Africa, Asia and Latin America, where over sixty specially commissioned case studies of farmer participatory approaches to agricultural innovation are presented. Specific questions are raised. How good/bad are NGOs at promoting technological innovation and addressing contraints to change in peasant culture? How effective are NGOs at strengthening local organizations? How do/will donor pressures influence NGOs and their links to the State?
