MetadataShow full item record
The Co-Ordinated Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) Programme is a systems approach to rural development in which institutional efforts, sectoral needs, target group requirements and ecological aspects are coordinated (Weyl 1984). Coordination plays a major role in this approach. The concept is based on the conviction that rural poverty can only be eliminated by a coordinated attack on its root causes and accepting the need for several coordinated efforts to be undertaken simultaneously to achieve a certain goal.
