    This Paper was the preliminary version of a book which can be downloaded or purchased via the link to IDRC, above, or purchased from the UK by clicking here: Three services were given particular attention in the case studies: marketing, access to technology, and business and management skills acquisition. Each case study - from Bolivia, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Ghana, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe - shows how small producers were introduced to new production and marketing systems and how private sector participation was successfully promoted. The analysis of these experiences looks at the feasibility of market-based BDS provision and the role of non-governmental organizations in building BDS markets.
