Conceptualizing integrative, farmer participatory research for sustainable agriculture: from opportunities to impact



Conceptualizing integrative, farmer participatory research for sustainable agriculture: from opportunities to impact



Agriculture and Human Values 19(1): 25-38



This paper offers a conceptual model for participatory research projects that aim to improve the sustainability of agriculture and natural resource management. The purpose of the model is to provide a systematic framework that can guide the design of participatory research projects, their analysis, and the documentation of results. In the model, conceptual boundaries are drawn between research and development, development and extension, and between extension and implementation.
