Feminization, agricultural transition and rural employment (FATE)

Methodology

Adopting a within-case as well as a cross-case research design, quantitative and qualitative data have been collected across four less developed, landlocked countries. The comparison aims at understanding the social and political conditions required for asset building at household level, and it illuminates the barriers to improve capabilities. Surveys and interviews have been conducted, and choice experiments were introduced as a rather new method in development research.
