Increasing recognition that technology-oriented agricultural projects had largely failed to significantly contribute to broad-based poverty reduction led to a significant shift in development thinking in the late 1990s. An alternative development paradigm began to emerge that placed much greater emphasis on pro-poor institutions and policies. It became widely accepted that an enabling institutional and policy environment is essential to create the framework conditions in which development can be steered to address the needs of the poor.
