Rural Planning in Developing Countries: Supporting Natural Resource Management and Sustainable Livelihoods

“This book provides an international perspective on rural planning in developing countries.”


It examines conventional technical development planning and innovations in local planning. It looks at a range of approaches to participation in planning, and explores the basis for stakeholder collaboration. The authors analyse and draw lessons from past and current practice and ways that land use planning and management of natural resources can underpin sustainable local livelihoods. They draw on case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America to present findings and recommendations relevant throughout the developing world. [From Earthscan]
