Sustainable development at the sharp end: field-worker agency in a participatory project



Sustainable development at the sharp end: field-worker agency in a participatory project



Development In Practice: an Oxfam Journal 7(3): 237-247



The paper takes an actor-oriented approach to understanding the significance for policy and practice of field-worker experience at the interface between project and people. It is set in the context of an Indian project in three states (Bihar, Orissa, and West Bengal, although only data from Bihar and West Bengal are utilized in the paper) which aims to reduce poverty through sustainable, participatory agricultural change, based on low-cost inputs, catalysed by village-based project staff.
