    Presumption of a direct causal link between formalisation of property rights
    and economic productivity is back on the international development agenda.
    Belief in such a direct causal relationship had been abandoned in the early

    Decentralization and community participation are major themes in current development policy. This study investigates perspectives on development held by individuals in arid and semi-arid areas of northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia that are predominantly used for pastoral production. Using a ranking exercise, individuals were asked to identify the most helpful types of development interventions in their opinion in the past, and also indicate their priorities for future development interventions. Results suggest there is relative consensus around a few key development interventions.
