Policy Studies in Developing Nations
This volume concentrates upon the theme of policy analysis concepts and methods, viewing it from an institutional and implementation focus. Environmental policy issues are emphasized with an analysis of low-level common pool Woodstock governance, Madagascar's national environmental action plan, agriculture policy assessment and forestry and irrigation policies. The text is international in its focus with case studies taken from Nepal, the Philippines, China and Africa. Emphasis is placed upon issues of policy reform and cutting the costs of corruption.
