|Part 4 Mini-case studies - How development can build on IK|
This section features 10 mini-case studies. They are based on field experiences of IIRR and several other organizations.
Each case highlights one or several of the many ways development projects: can build on IK, what can be done, and what hasn't worked. In particular case studies illustrate:
- the use of IK in planning, and the integration of IK recording in planing.
- the application of different types of IK (such as i technologies, animals and plants, human resources, local organizations, and schemes) during project implementation.
- the use of selected methods in recording and assessing IK.
- the modification of selected IK challenges faced when introducing to extensionists IK as a useful resource.
The cases are short and focus on project aspects which relate to IK.
