Investigación y desarrollo participativo para la agricultura y el manejo sostenible de recursos naturales : libro de consulta( )

8 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 3,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La investigación y el desarrollo ya no pueden ser de dominio exclusivo de los científicos. Con el fin de encontrar soluciones sustentables a los problemas del desarrollo, debe participar un amplio espectro de actores. Es crucial, por ejemplo, que las partes interesadas locales aporten al proceso. La investigación y el desarrollo participativo ofrecen un modelo incluyente de este tipo. Este libro de referencia de tres volúmenes ofrece un fácil acceso a conceptos y prácticas de investigación y desarrollo participativo probados en el terreno a profesionales, investigadores y académicos.

Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals : a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and French and held by 2,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lessons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred development." "Neglect of gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities and power in the processes of economic accumulation and social reproduction has a high cost, not only for women themselves but also for their children and other dependents and for the development of society as a whole. This book highlights the interconnections between production and reproduction within different societies, and women's critical role in straddling both, and points to the various synergies, trade-offs and externalities which these generate."--Jacket
Large mines and the community : socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( )

41 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in Spanish and English and held by 2,694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries, communities have been founded or shaped based upon their access to natural resources and today, in our globalizing world, major natural resource developments are spreading to more remote areas. Mining operations are a good example: they have a profound impact on local communities and are often the first industry in a remote region. However, whereas an enormous amount has been written about the macroeconomic effects of the mining industry, there has been practically no in-depth analysis of the comprehensive effects of large mines on their host communities, especially in developing countries." "In this book, researchers from Bolivia, Chile, and Peru present and analyze the environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic effects of large mining operations in their respective countries, as well as the processes that led to the observed effects. The book also presents a case study of the longest continually operating mine in the world, the Almaden mercury mine in Spain, and an overview of the experience of mining communities in Canada, one of the most important mining countries of the 20th century. A synthesis chapter draws together recommendations for best practice, intended to provide guidance to communities, companies, and governments for future and ongoing mining and other natural resource developments." "Interested readers will include individuals involved in local community development (including those in nongovernmental, bilateral, and multilateral agencies), mining company officials, staff of government mining and development agencies, and academics and researchers in economic, social, environmental, and natural resource issues."--Jacket
Cultivating peace : conflict and collaboration in natural resource management by Daniel Buckles( )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it be a local dispute between farmers and ranchers or an international clash over shared resources, people everywhere compete for the natural resources they need to ensure or enhance their quality of life. While the dimensions, levels, and intensity of conflict can vary greatly, so too can the opportunities for conflict resolution. This book presents original case studies from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, interspersed with essays on the cultural dimensions of conflict, the meaning of stakeholder analysis, the impact of development interventions on peace and conflict, and the policy dimensions of conflict management. The case studies present developing-world experience on moving from conflict to collaborative modes of management. The accompanying essays draw on the case studies, grounding theory in hard-won experience.--Publisher's description
Growing better cities : urban agriculture for sustainable development by Luc J. A Mougeot( )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United Nations predicts that over the next 25 years nearly all population growth will be in the cities of the developing world. At current rates, 60% of the world's total population will live in cities by 2030. As the cities grow, so does the number of urban poor. Unemployment, hunger, and malnutrition are commonplace. In the big city, most of any cash income the poor might bring home goes to feeding themselves and staying alive; any food that does not have to be bought is a bonus. As a result, more and more people are attempting to grow at least some of their own food to supplement poor
Water : local-level management by David B Brooks( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in Spanish and English and held by 2,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, more than 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water. Within the next 25 years, fully one-third of the world's population will experience severe water scarcity. It is clear that disparities in the availability and supply of fresh water are truly a matter of life and death, and constitute one of the great governance imperatives of our time." "This publication summarizes the results of three decades of IDRC-supported research on water supply. It demonstrates that some of the most powerful responses to water scarcities have been mounted at the community or local level - in households, farmers' fields, villages, and city neighbourhoods. With a focus on research findings, and failures, this book presents solidly grounded propositions for decision-makers and for researchers. It goes on to form a series of clear and pointed recommendations for policy design and future research efforts, and concludes with an eye to the future of water supply and a presentation of some of the key resources in the field."--Jacket
La gestión forestal municipal en América Latina by Lyès Ferroukhi( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book was written for three different purposes: (i) better understand the types of powers assigned to municipalities to this day, (ii) better understand the increasingly important role played by municipalities in forest management, (iii) analyze the opportunities that were created and the challenges faced by the decentralization processes in the region. The book compiles findings from in-depth studies conducted in 6 countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala. It uncovers some significant forest management schemes initiated by municipalities on the regional, na
Information and communication technologies for development in Africa by Tina James( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 2,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2 examines the setting, operations and effects of community telecenters. It describes the telecenter experiences of a variety of local and often rural communities, exploring the management structures and mechanisms that have been established to support these telecenters. The book provides profiles of telecenter usage and discusses the potential and challenges of setting up and maintaining community telecenters in the context of poor information infrastructure and limited human capacity. It will be useful for researchers, policy- and decision-makers, and development practitioners and professionals with interests or active programs in the area of 'ICT for development, ' particularly those with a focus on universal access and universal-service or public access centers. It will also be a very useful reference tool for scholars, students and academics
Comanagement of natural resources : local learning for poverty reduction by Stephen R Tyler( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A key message to resource managers, policymakers, researchers, and development practitioners is that proposed solutions to NRM problems will be effective and lasting only if driven by the knowledge, action, and learning of local users. This book presents only a small sample of the research on community-based NRM supported by IDRC over the years."--Jacket
Information and communication technologies for development in Africa by Ramata Molo Thioune( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and French and held by 1,999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1997, IDRC launched its Acacia initiative in an effort to empower sub-Saharan African communities with the ability to apply new information and communication technologies, or ICTs, to their own social and economic development. Now, 6 years later, the Acacia initiative presents this unique and groundbreaking three-volume collection of original research on this important and timely issue. Volume 1: Opportunities and Challenges for Community Development looks at the introduction, adoption, and utilization of ICTs at the community level. In various contexts -- geographical, technological, socioeconomic, cultural, and institutional -- the book explores the questions of community participation. It looks at how communities in sub-Saharan Africa have reacted to the changes brought about by the introduction of these new ICTs and, in detail, presents both the opportunities and the challenges that ICTs present for community development. The book will be useful for both researchers and development practitioners active, or just embarking upon, an "ICT for development" program. It will also be a very useful reference tool not only for academics but also for policymakers, decisionmakers, and development professionals interested in the issue. Book jacket."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fixing health systems by Don De Savigny( )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1993, the World Development Report suggested that directing health care budgets more proportionally toward the local "burden of disease" could significantly lower rates of death and disease. As the original edition of Fixing Health Systems revealed, the TEHIP program provided powerful evidence in support of that hypothesis. In TEHIP's two Tanzanian test districts, for example, modest funding increases and sweeping organizational changes contributed to decreases in child mortality of more than 40%." "Now, this second edition moves beyond the hopeful story of how TEHIP's interlocking web of systemic reforms improved the health outlook in Tanzania. With a new epilogue and preface, this updated volume also explores how the TEHIP example has helped create a paradigm shift in Africa and within the global health community."--Jaquette

Excision : les jeunes changent l'Afrique par les TIC by Marie Hélène Mottin Sylla( )

11 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 1,803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il n'est plus possible, en Afrique et ailleurs, de continuer à penser la question de l'excision comme on le fait depuis 25 ans. La société africaine de l'information est en pleine explosion : les technologies de l'information et de la communication (TIC) ne sont plus une nouveauté, la vie quotidienne est bouleversée et nombre de croyances et de pratiques en sont modifiées, en premier lieu chez les jeunes. Comment réexaminer l'impact de 25 années d'actions concertées engagées pour promouvoir, en Afrique de l'ouest francophone, l'abandon des mutilations génitales féminines (MGF) - l'excision ? E
Genes in the field : on-farm conservation of crop diversity by International Development Research Centre (Canada)( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diversity of crop plants is one of our most important biological resources, and the most important source of crop genes are the fields of peasant farmers in regions where crop domestication and evolution have occurred. Today, however, crop genes are threatened by social and technological change such as human population growth, the use of new agricultural technologies, the development of new varieties, and the commercialization of agriculture. Gene banks have been successful in capturing much of the genetic diversity of crop species, but it is also essential that the environmental systems w
