Researching the culture in agri-culture : social research for international agricultural development by A. H Kassam( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the functions, content, methods, findings and impact of social and cultural research carried out by the worldwide network of 16 international agricultural research centres of the CGIAR. It brings together the perspectives of 50 eminent scholars and social researchers from 30 countries working within the centres or in outside academic and development institutions. The contributions examine critically the priorities, strengths, and weaknesses of research on the sociostructural, behavioural, cultural and institutional variables of developing agriculture, forestry, livestock and fisheries. The studies focus on farmers' values, needs, knowledge, their patterns of social organization, issues of food security, natural resource management and poverty reduction. Alternative models of multidisciplinary research, reuniting biological, natural, economic and social sciences, are scrutinized in the light of experience and results, with emphasis on the nature of social science research as a source of international public goods and a key contributor to induced development. The book is intended for researchers of agricultural and rural development, economics, sociology, culture and anthropology. It has 22 chapters in addition to an editors' preface, and has a subject index
The building blocks of participation : testing bottom-up planning by Michael M Cernea( )

20 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines how a capacity for mobilizing community participation can be built into a project's design and staffing. This paper answers that question by analyzing, step-by-step, one case rich in experience: the decentralization project in Mexico and its predecessor, the PIDER (Programa Integral para el Desarrollo Rural) program. The time span of this series of projects stretches from the early 1970s to the early 1990s"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

Social organization and development anthropology : the 1995 Malinowski award lecture by Michael M Cernea( )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The way we legitimize to others or to ourselves the need for social analysis in development interventions creates a structure of expectations that becomes compelling. In other words, if we argue just the pragmatic, short-term operational benefits ' side of using anthropology, we will end up playing a very mundane fix-it-here-and-fix-it-there role. If, however, we convincingly construct the argument for a theoretical applied anthropology, we lay claim to having voice over the substance of development paradigms and policies. The rigid dichotomy between applied and theoretical anthropology is a simplistic representation that must be rejected. The practice of anthropology can generate value-added for society only if it is practiced as theoretical applied anthropology. What has to be applied through applied anthropology is our theoretically generalized knowledge about societies and cultures. What else would anthropologists have to apply? They use the research methods. What they apply is the storehouse of knowledge

The World Bank's Experience
The management of common property natural resources : some conceptual and operational fallacies by Daniel W Bromley( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term "common property" has been largely misunderstood and falsely interpreted for the past two to three decades. Common property regimes are not the free for all that they have been described to be, but are structured ownership arrangements within which management rules are developed, group size is known and enforced, incentives exist for co-owners to follow the accepted institutional arrangements, and sanctions work to insure compliance. Resource degradation in the developing countries, while incorrectly attributed to common property systems intrinsically, actually originates in the dissolution of local level institutional arrangements whose very purpose was to give rise to resource use patterns that were sustainable. Natural resource deterioration is also occurring widely outside the boundaries of common property systems. under private property and state property regimes

User groups as producers in participatory afforestation strategies by Michael M Cernea( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper contains a discussion of policy options and operational strategies for improving social forestry programs. The analysis of the types of social forestry approaches reveals that many programs are not designed around well identified social actors, and neglect to ensure clear benefit distribution arrangements and incentives. Participatory social forestry strategies must aim at engaging the rural users of fuelwood into organized activities for producing and managing forests. The author argues that an evolutionary shift from simple foraging and gathering fuelwood in naturally grown forests to cultivating trees for fuelwood is necessary. Part one of the study discusses the general social prerequisites for reforestation programs. It focuses on land tenure variables in forestry, particularly under regimes of common property over land. Part two of the study broadens the analysis from communities, as one type of group, to several other types of social groups and units of social organization. The author argues that each development strategy must be formulated around a clearly identified social actor, interested in its outcome and capable to carry it out. However, it is noted that not each kind of group is suitable for each and all development actions
Agricultural extension by training and visit : the Asian experience by Michael M Cernea( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors intend this book to assist the World Bank in its strong commitment to promoting agricultural development and to helping the least advantaged farmers to improve their productivity. Small farmers must use scientifically based agricultural technologies that are suitable for their location and farming system, and that have been adapted for accessibility and clear effectiveness. If agricultural development is to succeed, mutually reinforcing and open communication must exist between agricultural researchers and farmers. This book reviews one of the most promising ways of achieving such communication: the Training and Visit (T & V) system of agricultural extension. The authors capture nearly ten years of experience with the Training and Visit extension system, most of it in Asia. Farmer participation, the research-extension linkage, training, system management, and monitoring and evaluation are the major issues addressed. Within this framework, extension system managers and evaluators from six Asian countries and six discussants present their experience and analyses
