Profile

I explore what has driven, facilitated and impeded rural development over the last 60 years. I consider what lessons a range of stakeholders (such as governmental policy makers, NGOs, financial institutions, institutional donors and community groups) can learn from recent history, and how these lessons apply to an evolving context in which environmental and other trends and shocks, as well as the many possibilities of ICT, are affecting rural lives and economies. My geographical focus is the Global South. Within the Global South, the emphasis is on South and Southeast Asia, and on Sub-Saharan Africa.
