Voices in Development Management

Series Editor:

The Voices in Development Management series has provided a forum in which grass roots organisations and development practitioners could voice their views and present their perspectives along with the conventional development experts. Many of the volumes in the series contain explicit debates between various voices in development and permit the suite of neglected development issues such as gender and transport or the microcredit needs of low income communities to receive appropriate public and professional attention. After a successful run of almost 12 years, we are no longer accepting new submissions to the series.
