Jua kali Kenya : change & development in an informal economy, 1970-95 by Kenneth King( )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kenya was where the term 'informal sector' was first used in 1971. During the 1980s the term 'jua kali' - in Swahili 'hot sun' - came to be used of the informal sector artisans, such as carworkers and metalworkers, who were working under the hot sun because of a lack of premises. Gradually it came to refer to anybody in self-employment. And in 1988 the government set up the Jua Kali Development Programme. In this remarkable book Kenneth King brings the subject alive through the photographs and life histories of jua kali people. He has also revisited, twenty years later, many of the artisans whom he interviewed exhaustively in the period 1972-4 and about whom he wrote in The African Artisan, one of the first full length studies to be published on the informal sector. For donors, NGOs and for national governments, the book offers many relevant examples, and some cautions, about what has been achieved by ordinary Kenyas, mostly without government support. It will prove equally valuable for students and teachers of development policy, technology policy and of education and training policies not least because of its superb bibliography of over 700 entries related to small enterprise development

Through an examination of four agencies - the World Bank, the British Department for International Development, the Japan International Cooperation Agency and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency - the book explores what this new approach to aid means in both theory and practice.

Planning for technical and vocational skills development by Kenneth King( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The position of skills development on the agenda of policy-makers and development agencies improved markedly around the turn of the 21st century. This book tracks the ways skills have gained importance both in the developing and the more industrialized world. It analyses critically the multiple 'drivers' of skills development and the linkages of skills to the knowledge economy, growth, and employment in an increasingly competitive world. It also acknowledges the many modalities and delivery systems for skills development, arguing that this institutional diversity, often spread across several ministries and training authorities, has made it more difficult to give a national account of the skills development sector. The re-emergence of skills has triggered many reform initiatives associated with TVSD, some of which have become almost 'fashions' and are in danger of being adopted without sufficient evidence of their effectiveness. This work provides cautionary advice and fresh insights that planners will find rewarding."--Page 4 of cover
