This Technical Report proposes methods for the collection of data to compile improved measures of selected indicators, based on analyses of existing methods and field-testing of alternatives.
Technical Reports & Working Papers
The goal of the research line, “Mainstreaming sex-disaggregated data and gender indicators in agricultural statistics” is to improve the availability of comparable sex-disaggregated data and gender-relevant indicators within large-scale agricultural surveys.
In line with the current policy debate on agriculture and rural development, the improvement of methods for estimating post-harvest losses was identified by FAO member countries as a priority research topic to be included in the research programme of the Global Strategy.
This Literature Review shows that agricultural sustainability has been understood largely in its environmental dimensions, that it is affected by socio-economic and biophysical conditions, and that obstacles to sustainable agriculture are different in different countries.
On the basis of a gaps analysis, a methodology has been developed to estimate crop area and crop yield in mixed and continuous cropping scenarios.
This Technical Report reviews the literature related to the monitoring of characteristics of fisheries and anglers. It begins with an overview of why monitoring several dimensions of a fishery is important for the development of effective management plans, and considers aspects that might have particular relevance for developing and emerging economies.
This Technical Report seeks to define the different concepts and present the main measurement methods for agricultural productivity and efficiency.
The aim of this research is to provide an optional tool to integrate a Woodfuel Supplementary Module (WSM) into national household surveys with a view to enabling developing countries to enhance their statistics on the production and consumption of woodfuel.
This Technical Report focuses on the social dimension of rural statistics, offering ideas and possible solutions to improve information on rural populations that is relevant to the formulation of poverty reduction policies.
This Working Paper provides findings of field tests conducted in three countries i.e. Indonesia, Rwanda and Jamaica on the basis of the methodology developed by the team at ICAR-IASRI for the estimation of crop area, yield and production under mixed and continuous cropping.
This working paper identifies gender gaps in a wider set of land rights in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This Working Paper provides a framework for international comparison and promotes the harmonization of various types of statistics related to forest products. It can be useful in developing statistical systems related to forests and producing statistics on production, industry capacity and trade.
