Bio-enterprises, Endogenous Development and Well-being
TEXT SIZE  Increase   Decrease

This brief was written by Suneetha M. Subramanian, Wim Hiemstra and Bas Verschuuren.

While enhancing human well-being is a policy objective, defining various components that lead to human well-being vary at the macro level and at the level of local communities. This dichotomy in perspectives, due to differences in cultural norms and worldviews between the two levels, leads to poor implementation of policy activities. This policy brief examines these challenges in the context of establishment of bio-enterprises to meet development priorities.
