Overview

"This book sets out the rural livelihoods approach within the larger context of past and current themes in rural development. It adopts diversity as its principal theme, and explores the implications of diverse rural livelihoods for ideas about poverty, agriculture, environment, gender, and macroeconomic policy. It also considers appropriate methods for gaining quick and effective knowledge about the livelihoods of the rural poor for project and policy purposes."--BOOK JACKET.
