Acknowledgements

The ten case studies result from the work of so many people, over so many years, that it is impossible to acknowledge them all. However, it is worth recalling that the principal actors were the farmers, women and men, who shared information about their constraints and opportunities for equitable and sustainable livelihoods. A second important group of actors were those rural development and extension agents who, together with project staff, were responsible for facilitating the processes described here. A third group of actors were those who analysed, synthesised and wrote about these experiences, those who edited the original case studies, and those who translated them into English, French and Spanish. A special acknowledgement goes to the Government of Norway who provided the financial support for the preparation of this paper as well as for all of the case studies.
