Scientists working to provide farmers with new technologies often have a narrow view of the farming systems in which their technologies must fit. Conventional stereotypes also govern their views on gender. The exercises in this book help broaden their view of the farm system from a collection of enterprises on privately owned land to relationships among resource systems, some of which may well be common property.
Households, agroecosystems and rural resources management: a guidebook for broadening the concepts of gender and farming systems.
