000183534 520__ $$aThe main theme of this symposium is "Agricultural Restructuring in Southern
Africa". Seeking for a topic which has priority and which is - in the view of the author -
an integral part of this theme, this paper addresses the role of non-governmental
organizations in the socio-economic development process with people's participation as the
key. This institutional approach is closely interrelated with
land use and efficiency
small farmer support programs
the design of development projects
institutions and public choice theory
a self-reliance approach at individual as well as regional/national/international level.
All these points are linked with the crucial and challenging problem: How to
overcome the absolute poverty in the developing world by using the existing potentialities of
human and natural resources - supported by people's mutual help which is organized in their
private voluntary institutions and fostered by a macroeconomic political frame with positive
external effects for an active "development from the bottom". Due to the fact that absolute
poverty is mainly concentrated in rural areas, which also leads to sharp migration and the
problem of over-agglomeration of cities, the paper deals above all with this regional problem
and with the challenging approach to contribute to an adequate solution through so-called
"integrated rural development". The paper presents a frame in which empirical investigations
of Southern Africa can be integrated.
