Donkey populations are spreading in Africa. Women and men are finding donkeys ever more important for transport and farming. However, donkeys are neglected by governments, educational establishments, researchers and extension services. Despite their poor image in many societies, donkeys are being employed successfully thanks to farmer inventiveness and indigenous knowledge. Donkeys, people and development analyses the trends in donkey use and the social and economic benefits of donkeys for women and men. The lessons and constraints are explored through 45 papers prepared by 70 authors from 25 countries. Issues examined include the profitability of donkey transport, the complementarity of donkey power and the need for participative extension and research. The texts are illustrated by numerous tables, maps, diagrams and attractive photographs. The book contains a wealth of experience valuable to everyone concerned with rural livelihoods, transport and development, especially those involved in poverty alleviation, research, extension, training, gender issues and project implementation.".
