Farming systems research: hitting a moving target; The social scientist in farming systems research. (2 papers)



IDS Discussion Paper, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex (199): 50



Paper I argues that although targeting is a key element in farming systems research, neither the concepts nor the procedures take sufficient account of the fact that farming systems are in constant flux: the 'target' is not static, but continuously on the move. A framework is presented for the analysis of change and the practical implications for farming systems research are analyzed.
