Case Studies are hard to replicate. As one cannot recreate communities, environments, situations so one cannot possibly expect to replicate the outcomes of projects. The importance of a case study is not to provide a blue print for future initiatives but rather to pass on learning obtained through another's experiences which might be applied to new situations.

To explore the Asia InCH Case Study Archive simply scroll through the listing.

The case studies reproduced here are with the permission of the author(s) and represent their personal views.
