The sustainable development agenda and its emphasis on transformational change reframes innovation concepts, practice and policy. A central point of departure is the need to shift from innovation systems as a guiding framework to system innovation perspectives. This has significant implications for public agricultural research organisation, includi...

􏰨􏰄The CGIAR is currently in a state of transition from its historical role in addressing defined agricultural technology problems, to engagement with strategic partnerships addressing systemic change challenges of the type defined by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This review explores good practice in multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs...
Article
Full-text available
Feeding the world is not only a complex technical matter, but also a demanding governance issue. As food security has all the characteristics of a wicked problem (variety of problem definitions, conflicting interests, interconnectedness across scales, inherent uncertainties), conventional governance arrangements do not seem to work. New ways of con...

This book summarizes the lessons learned by the Pro-Poor Livestock Policy Initiative's (PPLPI) global endeavour to advance livestock sector policy in ways that confer the greatest benefit to poor people. It reviews major aspects of the livestock-povertyinterface with the objective of identifying the conditions under which livestock can be an effect...
Article
ABSTRACT Is the analysis of patron–client networks still important to the understanding of developing country politics or has it now been overtaken by a focus on ‘social capital’? Drawing on seventeen country studies of the political environment for livestock policy in poor countries, this article concludes that although the nature of patronage has...

Article
Full-text available
Tacit knowledge sharing discussed in this study is important in the area of business ethics, because an unwillingness to share knowledge that may hurt an organization’s survival is seen as being seriously unethical. In the proposed model of this study, distributive justice, procedural justice, and cooperativeness influence tacit knowledge sharing...

Since smallholders make up the large majority of the rural poor in Latin America, productivity gains and increased returns to their assets could contribute to widespread poverty alleviation. One such opportunity may be offered through diversification into high-value agricultural products, such as fruits, vegetables, meat or dairy products. This pap...

There are divergent views on what capacity development might mean in relation to agricultural biotechnology. The core of this debate is whether this should involve the development of human capital and research infrastructure, or whether it should encompass a wider range of activities which also include developing the capacity to use knowledge produ...

For many years, donkeys, together with horses and llamas, provided the only source of non-human transport in the Andean regions of Bolivia. This was mainly in their capacity as pack animals. Because of the nature of the terrain, carts were rarely an option. Even today, with an ever extending network of all-weather roads, the principal use of carts...

Rapid increases in population densities and the associated environmental changes have meant increased problems for farmers in planning effective resource management strategies. In response to these driving forces and to improve the efficiency of the available work animal resources, many traditional systems of management will have to change. An obvi...

A participatory rural appraisal (PRA) was designed to analyse current availability and use of draft animals in farming systems in the middle Andean hills, and to prepare detailed recommendations for demand-led draft animal research. The PRA was carried out between May and October of 1996 in six communities in three provinces (Capinota, Ayopaya, Tir...

Two experiments were designed to compare the energy used in carrying loads by donkeys and ponies. In the first experiment 3 donkeys and 3 ponies were compared on treadmills in the UK. Density of load (lead shot or straw) had no significant effect on the energy cost of carrying loads; however, the energy cost of carrying a load decreased significant...

Rice was grown in an inland valley (fadama) region of central Nigeria. Plots were cultivated using oxen either in the dry season or at the beginning of the wet season. Around 25% more time was required for dry season cultivation but this enabled an average saving of 53·5 h/ha during the most critical time of the year at the beginning of t...
Article
Maize was grown in the upland areas surrounding an inland valley in central Nigeria in a randomized block experiment using six cultivation techniques (manual cultivation with a hand hoe (MC); ploughing in both directions to throw up a ridge (DPL); single ploughing with the seed placed on the ridge (SPL); ridging with a wooden, single tine, locally...

Rice, a cash crop, was grown in the alluvial valley bottom (fadama) of an inland valley region of central Nigeria. The main staple crop, maize, was grown on the adjacent upland areas. Both oxen and manual labour were used for initial cultivation (ploughing and harrowing for rice and ridging for maize). Times spent were 94·3 and 315·2 h/ha re...

At the Centre for Tropical Veterinary Medicine, Scotland, during the summer months of 1987, two adult water buffaloes, two Brahman cattle and two Brahman × Friesian steers walked round a circular track on concrete or through 300 mm deep mud. Average walking speed (m/s) when unloaded, or average walking speed (m/s) when pulling 324 N, energy for wal...

The extra energy used for walking on the level and on negative gradients above that used when standing still (Ew) (J/m per kg live weight) was measured in two entire male donkeys (Equus asinus). E w was not affected by speed within the measured range (V = 0·6 to 1·3 m/s) but gradient (0, −10%, −15%) had a significant effect E w−10% = 0·97 (s.e. 0·0...
