Swiss contribution to India's development programme dates back to 1958. Swiss Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) were in the forefront of this endeavor followed by the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs in 1961. Since then, India has been the most important partner of the Swiss Government in development cooperation and also for many Swiss NGOs. Making use of case histories drawn from 50 years of wide-ranging cooperation in areas like food and other basic needs, work and income, training and education, rural finance, protection of the environment and participation in society, this book offers a wealth of data and thus contributes to a more informed debate on the merits and problems of development cooperation, in Switzerland, India and elsewhere.
