About this book

Insightful account of a number of NGOs, movements who have filled the void left by weak or corrupt governments, involved in the development process.

Without the active support of natural allies in the women's, development, and environment communities, family planning programs are increasingly vulnerable to mounting attacks from both the far right and far left of the political spectrum. The Rio Earth Summit amply demonstrated these difficulties. Fisher makes important recommendations about how to link up these constituencies to their mutual benefit, and her description of hundreds of grassroots organizations is an essential road map for anyone who wants to help make it happen.-Dr. Sharon Camp Senior Vice President and Director Education and Public Policy Population Action International
