Evaluating Social Development Projects
Edited by Peter Oakley and David Marsden
The goals of many social development programmes involve issues such as the development of indigenous sustainable capacity, the promotion of participation, the awakening of consciousness, and the encouragement of self-reliant strategies. Looking in detail at these aims, this book addresses such questions as: how are these achievements to be measured? What are the purposes of evaluations of these sorts of projects? Are evaluations of such projects essentially different from those of more conventional infrastructural projects?

Behind the Lines of Stone
The Social Impact of a Soil and Water Conservation Project in the Sahel
Oxfam's experimental soil and water conservation in the droughtprone Yatenga region of Burkina Faso won international acclaim and many imitators. The innovative techniques resulted in significantly increased cereal yields, and natural vegetation began to grow spontaneously again.
Oxfam commissioned a survey to discover how the project had affected the poorest in the community, especially women. The findings form the basis of this book, which will be of great interest to those involved in agricultural and environmental programmes, as well as community development workers in the field, and academics concerned with agricultural development in arid climates.
