    The paper provides a broad overview of current programming approaches and ongoing debates relating to agricultural rehabilitation, focusing particularly on seeds and tools interventions, institutional capacity building, and recent shifts towards market-, livelihoods- and rights- based approaches. Existing research and and evaluations illustrate the discrepancies between academic rhetoric and programming reality, and problems in conceptualizing transitions or linkages between relief and developme nt programming modes. The lack of evaluations that measure the impact of interventions does little to help in developing more effective programming options. The material presented in the paper is drawn from the inception report of an ongoing ODI-FAO-ICRISAT research project, ‘The changing roles of agricultural rehabilitation: Linking relief, development and support to rural livelihoods’, which aims to explore the issues raised here.
