Rural growth centres have a great potential for the surrounding areas, as these highly benefit from the economic development. Therefore a survey was carried out using multidisciplinary perspectives in order to verify people' s demands and key factors determining rural development. Significant in this study is that the voices of the people themselves were made heard. Using methods of participatory rural appraisal, core of the study were semi-structured interviews carried out in three small towns within the area of the Southwestern Towns Water and Sanitation Project (SWTWS), thereby emphasising aspects of quality of life as well as addressing issues of physical and social infrastructure. This book shows the very diverse opinions of the interviewed people and the strong interconnectedness of the identified factors. It furthermore draws attention to the importance of multidisciplinary perspectives in development assistance. Development agencies like the Austrian Development Cooperation are interested in the development of rural areas since the difference in quality of life between rural and urban areas is a decisive factor for migration into bigger towns, which provokes poverty in both.

|Saving for a Rainy Day?. Analysis of Uganda's Rural Peasant Savings Behaviour Книга по Требованию |
We find that the size of land owned, level of education of household members, educational level of the household head, and variation in rainfall determine household income and savings. Uganda' s peasant households are forward looking: they save relatively large proportions of their transitory income. The results suggest that households use savings to buffer consumption, with the implication that temporary shocks to income may not significantly affect household welfare. This is an important consumption smoothing mechanism for the peasant households in the rural areas of Uganda where financial institutions are absent. We use farm household data from the Uganda household surveys for 1992/93, 1995/96, 1996/97 and 1999/2000 to examine peasant household saving behaviour in the face of shocks.

|Analysis of decision making. Explaining Uganda’s Social Security and Pension Policy Reform Книга по Требованию Gerald K.K. |
In this regard, three processes could be envisaged: a) Institutional, b) Strategic, c) Consensual. These processes may enable us capture patterns through which actors interact, choose, reject and accept policy options. These forms of interaction do not only inform policies, but also determine the nature of established policies. These patterns are not absolute in themselves, but together, they led to the twenty four policy proposals for reforming the social security and pensions sector in Uganda. This work provides powerful insights for public sector reformers, decision making analysts, graduate-level students, social security and pensions organisations, social security and pension reform consultants and scholars, as well as other professionals interested in decision analysis and pension reforms. It analyses decision making and suggests that the mode of interaction between various actors affects the outcome and the nature of policy options. This book departs from traditional decision analysis based on game theory and decision trees and addresses how policy proposals are made in the public arena, with reference to the social security reform process in Uganda.
