36. Development Interventions in Wollaita, 1960s-2000s: A Critical 1Review
Author: Author: Dessalegn Rahmato
FSS Monograph No.4

This study examines the development interventions in Wollaita during the last four and half decades from the point of view of three key determinants of poverty and destitution, namely, population dynamics and land shortage, urbanization and commercialization, and livelihood diversification. The study suggests that a considerable policy shift is needed to put these determinants at center stage and to accelerate the pace of development.
