From farmer to planner and back. Harvesting best practices
The From farmer to planner and back package highlights the advantages of incorporating participatory and gender approaches in development work. Two of the four-volume set provide case studies from Africa & the Near East and from Asia & Latin America. On the basis of some of these case-studies a key-issues paper has been synthesised, which gives insights in recent development, such as on the effect of decentralisation of agricultural planning, on the effects of increased participatory methods and on the effects of increased attention to gender issues. Resulting form discussions on these key-issues, a responsive planner has been drawn up, which offers ways to assure that agricultural development is participatory and gender responsive. The final volume focuses on trainers, offering ideas and best practices for trainers, who integrate gender and participatory methods in their programmes. Examples include for instance, the use of visual techniques in gender based natural resource management and how to monitor participatory impact. In this package, the Women in Development Service of FAO, has brought together analyses and lessons learned from field projects carried out throughout the world. The choice for the slipcase-concept might be a bit less fortunate, but there is a lesson from the publication. Feedback rules throughout! From farmer to planner and back.
