Drug Crop Production, Poverty, and Development, Julia Buxton (2015)

This briefing paper was published by the Open Society Foundation in 2015. The paper addresses the lack of success of alternative development (AD) programs. 

Topics covered are failure to understand the economic motivation for drug crop cultivation, the inconsistency in the different AD approaches, the further marginalization of itinerant labourers and the landless, and the failure to incorporate human development standards when implementing AD programs.
