Rapid Rural Appraisal strategies for collecting and analysing data: Papua New Guinea Export Tree Crops Study

Publication year: 

This paper establishes models for the collection and analysing of data for the Papua New Guinea Tree Crops Study. Four schemes of rural data collection are distinguished: pure monitoring; research for large-scale projects; research that is participatory and small-scale; and, research that strikes a balance btween the second and third schemes. The paper states that the Papua New Guinea Export Tree Crops Study requires characteristics from all of these schemes and attempts to provide a sythesis of "top down" and "bottom up" approaches for this study.

This paper may be of interest to government policy makers and planners in the South, NGO fieldworkers, agriculturalists and agricultural researchers.
