Combining disciplines in rapid appraisal: the sondeo approach - Nov 1981

Sum. (En)

In Guatemala a reconnaissance survey team of socio-economists and technologists, has been used to assess farmer constrains and technology needs in advance of agricultural research. Quantified information and questionnaires are not required and the survey lasts only one week. The team investigated farmer conditions in pairs made up of a social scientist and a natural scientist. On each of four days the pairing changes. Daily post-survey team discussions are regarded as essential. Each member of the team prepares a report and these are finally amalgamated into one joint report. Experience has shown that combined disciplines can, if well managed, produce incisive and efficient diagnoses of rural conditions and needs and educate the participants in multidisciplinary thinking
