Alternative financing is a basic tool for leaders of development organizations or NGOs who wish to consider alternative ways of financing development. The book questions the fund-raising strategies of such organizations, especially as regards international aid. The numerous examples listed in the book should provide the key for action and alternatives required to increase the financial autonomy of development organizations.

Volume I deals with identifying the stumbling blocks and limitations of the present financing system, as well as drawing extensively on case studies from around the world, especially those of the Foundation Research and Applications of Alternative Financing Development (RAFAD) and Women's World Banking (WWB).

Agricultural books published in Africa is a catalogue of selected agricultural and related books. It describes over 100 publications on agriculture from ten African countries, covering agriculture, rural development and technology, agrarian economics and specific agricultural topics, including crops, forestry, livestock, fish, pest research, and permaculture.

It is hoped that this catalogue will serve as a source of practical information for obtaining African-published agricultural materials. It is published by the African Publishers' Network (APNET) in collaboration with CTA.
