A mental construct for unstructured on-farm interviews for use in rapid rural appraisal


, : A mental construct for unstructured on-farm interviews for use in rapid rural appraisal. Agricultural Administration 8(4): 271-278

In consequence, decision-makers are often ill-briefed on rural matters. The potential biases of rapid rural appraisal are introduced.
