||In farming communities in Tanzania and Zambia, I have been involved in both practice and research on regional development focusing on spontaneous participation. With focus on mutual actions between actors of development practices, I have conducted research on the roles of residents’ groups and farmers’ groups and their changes, the utilization and management of resources, and conflicts and cooperation over development practices. I am interested in the challenges and potential of spontaneous development and sustainable development in African farming communities.
