This book provides advice to relief workers considering a distribution of seeds and tools to refugees or displaced people. It covers preliminary assessment, project design, and implementation, including the choice of seeds and tools to distribute, and methods of distribution. It emphasizes the need, at every stage, to consult the men and women who will use the seeds and tools. The main text is intended to be readily accessible to the non-specialist, but detailed technical information is included in the form of appendices.
