Product Overview

Indigenous organizations are local-level institutions with a community base, such as women''s groups, ethnic associations, traditional religious groups, and a wide variety of other social groups. This significant book investigateslocal planning and management systems, local levels of technology useand development, community-based systems of evaluation and capacity building, and distinct social roles of the varied groups which exist worldwide. Some chapters investigate the problems of imposition of new organizational structures on local communities, others look at the rhetoric of "empowerment" as against the reality of local decision-making. There is no other published collection which describes such a wide range of local organizations. It is of appeal to development workers as well as students and teachers of development studies, and of development management.
