Listening to Farmers: Qualitative Impact Assessments in Unfavorable Rice Environments
The Cosortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) built on the body of knowledge and technologies that have been developed, and it has promoted a wider understanding of the role of farmer participatory research in technology development. CURE has encouraged the development and validation of technologies under farmer-managed conditions in order to tailor their development to “social, cultural, and economic factors, as well as external policy and market forces.”
A series of case studies were undertaken to highlight the importance of linking technology development with farmer participatory research to achieve impact on the livelihoods of resource-poor households in unfavorable environments. The technologies evaluated in this bulletin are an outcome of this ongoing research process.
