Process monitoring and inter-organisational collaboration in Indian agriculture: Udaipur District and beyond: John Farrington, Elon Gilbert and Rajiv Khandelwal

Introduction Two features distinguish the experiences presented here from those of Chapters 3 to 6 in this book:

• they are located in a context of efforts by indigenous (in this case, Indian) organisations, governmental and non-governmental, to identify how they might work more closely together, a context in which funding by the donor sponsoring process monitoring (PM) - and by donors in general-plays an important facilitating, but secondary role;

• they derive not from projects, but from day-to-day interaction among different types of organisation in which projects, programmes, administrative and legal procedures and politics all playa part.
