Studies in Development Processes
This is a series of publication brought out by our team based on intensive and field based research work carried out by VAF staff and associates in the respective fields. Formal research papers on the themes covered would have been written on these researches and be published or presented elsewhere. These documents are meant to primarily disseminate the findings with a view to create interest and awareness about the issue on which they are focus, act as bases of discussions and eventually lead to action. An attempt is made to emphasize the readability rather than scholastic exactitude. These documents can be used freely for academic purpose or for the purpose of advocating action inherent to the issue. VAF will appreciate being acknowledged when they are so used.
