Abstract

The voices of the poor are generally muted and do not resonate in agricultural statistics and in policy decision making because reliable and timely data are not available on consequences of change on the rural poor. Decisions made on incomplete information may be quantitatively accurate, but in terms of the dynamics of the changes, they are fuzzy, anecdotal and fragmented. Reducing poverty is a dynamic process that is driven by individuals, families, firms and institutions within a changing technological, institutional, socio-economic and policy environment. The understanding of village-level information and ground realities can act as an important catalyst in accelerating development. It provides a working knowledge of the rural economy, which can point to ways in which the development of rural livelihood pathways can be achieved at a quicker pace.
