The report presents the actual implementing strategy, the results of the technical assistance activities in beneficiary countries and the main lessons learned from the overall process of the Accelerated technical assistance Plan implemented under the responsibility of the Global Office in Africa.
Technical Reports & Working Papers
The Report introduces and discusses the problem of measuring area and yield of vegetable crops, by exploring and testing methods such as farmer inquiry and objectives measurement and to propose a methodology for the production of data and statistics. A pilot test has been performed in two selected districts in Ghana to assess the methodology and the workability of the methods.
This technical report is the result of a study conducted in close collaboration with the General Statistical Office of Vietnam (GSO), the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam (MARD), TE-FOOD and the Australian Commonwealth Research Centre (CSIRO-Data 61). The objectives were to contribute to a better understanding of the applications of blockchain technology and its implications for the official statisticians in the livestock sector, to analyse the feasibility and the sustainability of using information available on the blockchain from an official statistical perspective, on the basis of the systems put in place by TE-FOOD in the pig sector in Vietnam and to make recommendations, discuss possible improvements and propose a further research agenda.
This technical report on Agricultural Master Sampling Frames: Lessons learned from international field experiments and case studies compiles results from a series of experiments carried out by the Global Strategy to improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (GSARS) in 2016 and 2017, in Brazil, Nepal and Rwanda.
The present document presents two case-studies, to illustrate the process of compilation of productivity indicators: i) the calculation of labour productivity based on data collected at farm-level, that is based on a pilot survey in Zambia, and ii) the construction of aggregate and country-level information on agricultural productivity from aggregate time-series.
The Technical Report aims to develop an international definition of rural areas and indicators of rural development. This summary report pilot tests were analytical desktop assessments carried out in seven countries with the cooperation of the National Statistical Offices (Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, France, Malaysia, Pakistan and the United States of America).
This technical report presents the results of a field test implemented in Costa Rica as part of the research activities planned within the frame of GSARS research line “SUST-3: Data collection methods for agri-environmental indicators”.
This technical report presents different dimensions of employment and underemployment within agricultural households in three communities in Kenya.
This final technical report presents guidance for constructing a Master Sampling Frame (MSF) to use for surveys of fisheries or aquaculture.
The overall goal of the study is to test the methodology and the approach developed by the Agriculture Market Information System (AMIS) project, which outlined the use of available data to estimate certain critical variables on food balance sheets, especially Carry-in Stocks (also called Carry-over stocks), and Production.
The objective of this technical report is to serve as the foundation for developing a generalized cost-effective methodology to collect information on DW and youth employment in agriculture.
This Technical Report aims to present the methodology implemented for the spatial delimitation and production of statistics of rural areas and the results obtained.
