This book contains 6 case studies exploring the dynamic linkages between farm and non-farm activities in Africa and Latin America. These studies: (1) characterize spin-off activities in each study area and evaluate their importance to rural employment, income and growth; (2) describe, compare, analyse, and synthesize experiences (successful and unsuccessful) of growth and promotion of linkages in high potential areas; and (3) suggest policy and programme options for promoting growth and employment opportunities in the off-farm sector in rural economies. The case studies focus particularly on the institutional, organizational, and technological aspects of spin-off activities.
