The test phase of the project Improving Methods for Estimating Livestock Production and Productivity is based on the literature review and gap analysis and was carried out in three countries (Botswana, Tanzania and Indonesia).
Technical Reports & Working Papers
This Technical Report first provides an overview of the existing frameworks of environmental indicators that focus on the mutual interactions between rural livelihoods and their biophysical environment.
This Gap Analysis Report seeks methods for improving the quality of livestock data across a range of species and focuses on production-level livestock, specifically on the measurement of production and productivity at household level.
This report contains a literature review of classifications and typologies developed in agriculture and a preliminary proposal for classification principles that can feed into the guidelines for establishing an international framework for farm typologies.
This Technical Report aims to provide guidelines for the application of different remote sensing products in various agricultural landscapes, and for the preparation of an integrated database to be used as a baseline in constructing the Master Sampling Frame.
This working paper presents and discusses findings from field testing in two countries: Côte d’Ivoire and Tanzania.
This technical paper reviews the literature on the methodologies for reconciling data from agricultural censuses and surveys.
This working paper offers a comprehensive view of rural statistics, illustrates how indicators may be selected, and suggests alternative definitions of rural.
This Technical Report is a first step towards improving national statistics on the production and consumption of woodfuel in developing countries.
The objective of this working paper is to design a protocol for in-country testing of specific ways to employ strategies and methodologies for improving administrative data.
Country field tests form an integral part of research projects under the Global Strategy to improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics. This technical report presents three field tests on agricultural cost of production statistics.
The aim of the research is to develop strategies and methodologies for the improvement of the collection and management of data from administrative sources and of their use in an integrated agricultural statistics system in developing countries.
