Rural Development in South Asia

Jitendra Kumar Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The issue of rural development is a persistent and long-standing challenge. The strategy for improving the rural poor has undergone some significant changes along with the changes in the perception of the process of development. The philosophy of development is firmly anchored in the vision that growth alone would be a panacea for all social ills, including poverty eradication. Rural poverty is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon and the poverty processes which entrap the poor are highly dynamic. There is no given prescription for solutions which are valid over time, between countries and even between different areas within the same region in any given country. The policy makers and development practitioners should develop specific instrumentalities in response to specific situations, and adapt these to new situations. This book deals comprehensively with the vast, globally important subject of rural development in South Asian backgrounds. It includes the basic concepts, paradigms, policies, management and latest details about the subject in this region. It is an excellent discourse on South Asian rural development which is valuable to policy makers, researchers, scholars, students, and those who are involved in developmental activities.
