Pastoral Livestock Development in Central Asia
According to this paper: "Economic restructuring has led to a fall in the living standards of herding families. The sudden end of state subsidies, the gradual disintegration of state and collective farms, and continuing production declines have worsened the conditions of the population - especially that of the vulnerable groups - and poverty and unemployment have become acute social problems."

Participation in practice: Lessons from the FAO People's Participation Programme
Rural development efforts have failed to deliver on their promises. One evaluation found that half of rural development projects funded by the World Bank in Africa were outright failures. A review of assistance to agricultural cooperatives reported similar results.
