A new guide for livestock professionals, written by NRI author Czech Conroy, has earned plaudits from international agricultural development experts.
- Robert Chambers has said of it: "This guide fills a serious gap. A treasury of practical ideas and good advice based on extensive experience... It should be on the desks of all who are engaged on research to serve small-scale livestock producers in developing countries";
- Prof. Gordon Conway FRS has written: "This book provides a comprehensive and unique guide... As such, it should be read – and used – by livestock professionals worldwide"; and
- Prof. Jules Pretty has described it as: "A timely and extremely valuable guide to engaging livestock raisers in research to improve their systems of production."
The book – "Participatory Livestock Research: A Guide" – is the first to provide an introduction to participatory research for livestock development. It brings together the author's expert knowledge of livestock research issues and of participatory research approaches in order to help researchers and practitioners to overcome the potential difficulties associated with participatory research on livestock. It illustrates the subject with practical case-studies from many different projects around the world, including examples from Mozambique, Kenya, Sudan, India, South-East Asia and Mexico.
