Intrahousehold resource allocation in developing countries : models, methods, and policy ( Book )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
In this new volume from the International Food Policy Research Institute, economists, demographers, sociologists, and anthropologists collaborate in the study of how resources are allocated within households in developing countries and why it matters from a policy perspective. Surveying a broad body of theory and evidence, the contributors examine the many social and cultural factors that influence decisions at the family and household level about the allocation of time, income, assets, and other resources. Shedding new light on a process that is often hidden from view and difficult to measure, they show that a more complete understanding of intrahousehold behavior can increase the likelihood that policies will reach the people they are intended to affect - leading to better policies in areas such as food production and consumption, nutrition, natural resource management, and fertility

Power, politics, and performance : community participation in South African public works programs by Michelle Adato( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide
Since 1994, public works programs with community participation have been part of South Africa's efforts to reduce poverty through increasing employment, skills, infrastructure, and local capacities. This report is an analysis of the intended and actual responsibilities of community forums and community-based committees; the value added by community participation in project selection, design, and management, and the problems introduced; the impact of community participation on project performance; and the factors that have constrained the ability of community-based committees to play the role envisioned for them in policy documents. The research provides a window into the developmental changes and challenges faced by South Africa since its transition to democracy in 1994 and reveals the dilemmas and possibilities pertaining to community-driven development projects

Agricultural research and poverty reduction by P Hazell( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
International agricultural research has contributed enormously to increasing world food supplies to their current state of plenty. Yet poverty remains a major problem and the challenge for agricultural research now lies in developing strategies that more explicitly address the needs of the poor. This paper, based on the study commissioned by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of the CGIAR system, addresses this issue. Based on an analysis of the links between agricultural research and poverty alleviation in different types of countries and rural regions, Peter Hazell and Lawrence Haddad identify six key priorities for a pro-poor agricultural research agenda and discuss strategies for achieving each of these goals with the least trade-off in national agricultural growth.
