Abstract

This report concerns a research project focused on an improved understanding and appropriate policy development for the rural non-farm economy. The research is being undertaken by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI) in collaboration with local and UK partners, with funding from the UK's Department for International Development (DFID) under a collaborative agreement with the World Bank. Interest in the non-farm economy stems from growing recognition of its important role in rural incomes, and its potential contribution to poverty reduction. This report covers: the aims and rationale of the approach, the establishment of fieldwork and methods used for data collection and the survey process and limitations. Part of the rationale of this initial phase of the research programme was to conduct appraise potential research methods and a undertake a participatory assessment of the approach, for the purposes of training of future teams and for the standardisation of prospective deployment of these methods. The methods and process are therefore described in detail.
