Fieldwork in developing countries by Stephen Devereux( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
"Practical, realistic, and based on firsthand experiences, this sorely needed resource addresses theoretical concerns at the same time that it reflects the important fact that the context within which fieldwork is conducted is absolutely integral to the research process." "Part 1 of the book offers an introduction to the many features common to all fieldwork situations. The authors discuss preparing for, participation in, and returning from fieldwork, then narrow the focus to specific methodological matters." "In Part 2, eleven case studies, drawn from the authors' personal experiences, cover issues relating both to the conduct of research and to questions of lifestyle and interactions with the local community. The authors invariably present alternatives rather than prescriptions, hoping to excite critical thought on fieldwork method, as well as to suggest possible solutions to common problems."--Jacket
Intrahousehold resource allocation in developing countries : models, methods, and policy ( Book )

Conditional cash transfers in Latin America by Michelle Adato( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
Conditional cash transfer programs (CCTs) have become increasingly popular in low--income countries, particularly in Latin America. CCTs involve cash payments to poor families when they participate in educational, health--related, nutritional, or other services that could help lift them out of poverty. The apparent success of CCTs has led some development specialists to refer to CCTs as "a magic bullet." Conditional Cash Transfers in Latin America evaluates the effectiveness and reliability of CCTs in reducing poverty. The contributors synthesize evidence and analysis from four case studies of Brazil, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. Using state--of--the--art quantitative and qualitative methods, the studies examine various aspects of CCTs, including the trends in development and political economy that fostered interest in them; their impacts on education, health, nutrition, and food consumption; and how CCT programs affect -- and how their outcomes are affected by -- social relations shaped by gender, culture, and community. Throughout, the authors identify the strengths and weaknesses of CCTs and offer guidelines to those who design them. Successful programs depend on a clear definition of program goals, adapting program design to a particular country's circumstances, effective communication with CCT beneficiaries, high--quality services, and an appreciation of social relations within a given community. This new study is a valuable resource for anyone trying to understand, implement, improve, and build on the success of established conditional cash transfer programs
Economic mobility and poverty dynamics in developing countries ( Book )

Validating operational food insecurity indicators against a dynamic benchmark evidence from Mali by Luc J Christiaensen( file )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Indicators of household food insecurity are typically static and thus ignore a key dimension of food insecurity. An explicitly forward-looking food insecurity indicator is developed that takes into account both current dietary inadequacy and vulnerability to dietary inadequacy in the future. Relative to this dynamic benchmark three readily available indicators are evaluated
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 50 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

The impact of agricultural extension on farm production in resettlement areas of Zimbabwe by Trudy Owens( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
In this paper, we revisit the contested issue of the impact of agricultural extension on farm production. We exploit two features of the data available to us: its longitudinal nature and explicit measures of farmer ability. We find that after controlling for innate productivity characteristics and farmer ability either using household fixed effects estimation, or by including a measure of farmer ability and village fixed effects, access to agricultural extension services, defined as receiving one or two visits per agricultural year, raises the value of crop production by about 15 per cent. This parameter estimate is statistically significant. However, we also find variability in these parameter estimates across individual crop years, with the impact being markedly different in drought and non-drought years. Collectively, these results suggest that although access to farm-level extension visits does increase productivity even after controlling for innate productivity characteristics and farmer ability, results from single-year cross-sectional studies should be treated with caution
