Abstract:

Karim Hussein draws on a multi-country study of agricultural research-extension-producer organization linkages in West Africa to argue that producer organizations (POs) have key roles to play in technology development and improving the livelihoods of the poor in developing countries. The role of POs is especially important in the context of globalization. Practical lessons for sustainable livelihoods approaches and promoting empowerment through organization are drawn from this study.Development (2001) 44, 61–66. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110294
