This ILE|A workshop may be seen as a follow up of the workshop organized by the Institute for Development Studies, lDS, in Sussex, in June 1987: Farmers and Agricultural Research: Complementary methods. During the IDS workshop it was recommended that a number of regional meetings and workshops in the third world should be organised in order to link and exchange regional experiences in the field of farmer participation in technology development.

The ILEIA workshop was an intermediate step between the IDS workshop and the regionalworkshops; lt provided the opportunities

  • To make a more comprehensive inventory and assessment of the existing experiences
  • To agree on a format for describing practical methods and
  • To formulate a strategy for the further development of the methods of participatory technology development.
