Abstract

This paper draws attention to best practices and strategies for projects and programmes aimed at promoting rural non-farm employment in developing and transitional economies. It is based on a number of case studies and regional workshops commissioned by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the World Bank, under their Collaborative Programme on Rural Development. While the focus is on project interventions, linkages with public investment programmes and policies are also explored. The paper is structured as follows. Section I summarises and develops the main findings from the RIMISP study and the San José workshop. Based on the presentations and discussions at country and regional workshops, section II discusses the relevance of the best practices and strategies identified in Latin America for other developing regions and transition economies and Section III identifies knowledge gaps and future research avenues. Finally, section IV summarises the main conclusions.
