26 April 2011: Does Participatory Development Mean Legitimisation of Cooption Mechanisms? Evidence from Karnataka Watershed Development Agency, India

While examining participatory development projects, existing contributions
have demonstrated how aid resources are often captured by local elites.
This paper hypothesises that another possible source of corruption is
collusion between Project implementers and farmers. This is examined with
evidence from the DFID funded Karnataka Watershed Development Agency
(KAWAD) project in Southern India. There is a need to develop mechanisms
for appropriate feedbacks and checks in India and this is an arena for
further research and praxis.
