Top down . . . bottom up . . . what works? This book explores development from the
perspective of the poor. Who are they? What lives do they live? What matters to
them? And most importantly, what can they do about it?

Martin and Mathema debate how people can be given legitimate control of their
own environment, and how governments can work with them. How do communities
and conditions drive behavior? What interventions are appropriate and how can we
approach development imaginatively?

This is not about usurping governance - but revisiting structures that the developed
world has come to accept, and placing the power of decision in the hands of the
people it affects.

Nor it is about money . . . it's about people, and about how we can make our world
work for everyone.
