The Evolution of Alternative Rural Development Strategies in Ethiopia; Implications for Employment and Income Distribution. African Rural Employment Paper No. 12.
Tecle, Tesfai
As Ethiopia has designed and implemented numerous intensive (geographically concentrated) and minimum-package rural development programs between 1967-75, the purpose of this monograph is to: (1) trace the evolution of these package projects; (2) analyze package performances; and (3) identify the implications for Ethiopian planners and policy makers. The monograph's 7 sections are identified as follows: (1) Introduction; (2) Three Major Integrated Rural Development Projects (discussion of intensive packages focusing on organizational frameworks and major components which include: development of an improved technological package; dissemination of new practices; farm credit; lending policies; performance of the credit program; output marketing; and other components); (3) The Minimum Package Project (MPP's organization and major components); (4) Overall Assessment of the Ethiopian Package Projects (agricultural output and income; income distribution; employment; and local participation); (5) the Extension and Project Implementation Department of the 1975-80 Period (role of the intensive package projects and MPP's proposed rate of expansion); (6) Some Current Rural Development Issues (land tenure, reform, trained manpower, transportation, marketing, new technology, peasant associations, dissemination of innovations, and administrative organization); (7) Summary.
