Development Alternatives NGO-Government Partnership in Pakistan (W-30)
Jennifer Bennett, SDPI
The author explores Pakistan’s rural development projects and the promotion of rain-fed agriculture by the successful cooperation among government, local communities and NGOs working for sustainable livelihoods. Collective empowerment has been fostered by local initiatives, motivating the creation of Community Organizations and Women’s Organizations, implementing saving-credit schemes based on a participatory process, and mobilizing the community in the development of managerial abilities.
