Measuring the impact of user participation in agricultural and natural resource management research



Measuring the impact of user participation in agricultural and natural resource management research



Agricultural Systems 78(2): 287-306



This paper assesses the impact of using participatory methods in three agricultural research projects which have a natural resource management focus. Mixed methods are used to assess technological, economic, human, and social impacts and the cost implications of incorporating beneficiaries into the research process. User participation was found to influence priorities and practices within and beyond the specific projects studied.
