Knowledge, power and policy. The case of agricultural development in Dhading District, Nepal
Agricultural intensification is happening in sub-urban Kathmandu, with districts such as Dhading developing market gardening to cater for the ever growing needs of the growing city. But intensification can also impact negatively on the environment, unless accompanied by appropriate agricultural and environmental policies and services. This study explores the drivers for agricultural policies and practices in Dhading, using a political economy framework that emphasises the role of knowledge in decision making.
