Autre titre : L'appui aux producteurs ruraux et aux organisations payasannes : lessons d'expériences en Afrique de l'Ouest. Guide à l'usage des agents de développement et des responsables de groupements

Abstract : Rural people are increasingly expected to become the main participants of their own development. However, they seldom have the required knowledge for making sound decisions in such a changing and uncertain context. They lack the skills and self-confidence to make change happen. Their activities and Choices are limited by poor access to most markets; inept local institutions; and lack of external support. This handbook is based on experiences of rural development support at local level in West Africa. It highlights approaches and methodologies that were proven successful. It aims to empower development operators and local managers in defining new roles and approaches to planning, training, experimentation, support of local organisations, extension, natural resource management, gender and financing.
