Cultivating peace : conflict and collaboration in natural resource management by Daniel Buckles( Book )
14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 266 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( Book )
22 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 223 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
Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals : a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( Book )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and French and held by 221 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

Water : local-level management by David B Brooks( Book )
21 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 139 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

11 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 120 libraries worldwide
"Reconciling environmental and human health is a new area of research, requiring input from scientists, community and interest groups, and decision-makers. This book describes this new approach, providing lessons and recommendations from various IDRC-supported research activities. It demonstrates how decision-makers, in particular, can use the Ecohealth approach to formulate policies and solutions that are both immediately visible and sustainable over the long term."--Jacket

Comanagement of natural resources : local learning for poverty reduction by Stephen R Tyler( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 104 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
African researchers and decision-makers : building synergy for development by Abdoulaye Ndiaye( Book )
13 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 94 libraries worldwide
For the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and its partners, the link between research and policy is of paramount importance in their goal to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions in developing countries. Collaboration between researchers and decision-makers, however, is complex, multifaceted, and often difficult to implement. Further, research is very often designed and carried out without regard for its potential users or beneficiaries. How should research agendas be developed? What is the role of the private sector in developing research? Which actors are invo

From workplace to workspace : using email lists to work together by Maureen James( Book )
21 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 74 libraries worldwide
Electronic mailing lists are a cost-effective way to bring together people with common interests. This guide is intended to help people decide how to set up a mailing list for an organization, launch the list, and keep it maintained and active. Information in the guide is organized according to the stages that a facilitator goes through in preparing to use a mailing list to work productively with a group of people. The first section covers the set-up stage and includes an overview of mailing lists and how to prepare the group to use them. It ends with a checklist that serves as a quick reference. The second section introduces the concepts of on-line facilitation and how to apply these concepts to the group's work. It also outlines how lists can be used for specific group activities such as producing documents together and holding meetings. The final section reviews work involved in setting up and animating a mailing list

L'apprentissage par les pairs : réseaux et coopération pour le développement by Jean-H Guilmette( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Les experts en développement se réclament bien souvent d'un vieux proverbe chinois, "Qui donne un poisson à un homme le nourrit pour une journée ; qui lui apprend à pêcher le nourrit jusqu'à la fi n de ses jours". Mais l'aide au développement a graduellement pris l'habitude d'apporter aux problèmes du tiers-monde des solutions conçues et exportés par des "spécialistes" presque toujours en provenance des économies développées. Ces solutions sont souvent rejetées ou poliment mises en sommeil parce qu'elles ne semblent guère coller à la réalité. Par contre, des solutions reposant sur le principe de l'"autoassistance" ont beaucoup plus de chances de s'enraciner. Ce livre étudie sous tous ses aspects la démarche fondée sur l'autoassistance et l'apprentissage entre pairs adoptée par l'Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques (OCDE) et la compare à celle du Centre de recherche pour le développement international (CRDI), deux méthodes qui ont fait leurs preuves. Il se concentre sur l'importance des réseaux pour le développement et la croissance, et démontre que la gestion de réseaux est fondamentalement différente de la gestion d'entreprises, d'organisations ou d'autres organismes qui relèvent d'une seule autorité. Le livre intéressera les planifi cateurs, les responsables des politiques et les chercheurs des pays industrialisés et en développement et, en particulier, des démocraties nouvelles et émergentes d'Europe de l'Est
