Many of the other contributing authors write about topics that are very important to development practitioners, ranging from finance to income generation. A lot has been said about the benefits and threats of globalisation by leading academics and policy advisors. This book highlights the realities on the ground where some people are business people because they have to survive. It also highlights the role of development practitioners and decision makers in crafting a local response to globalisation. This is essential in a time where most local and regional institutions and development agencies in the developing world are struggling to be effective, or where the supporting institutions are simply weak or non-existing. Hopefully this book will equip local practitioners with some hints on where to start.
