Chambers, B Spriggs, J Dunn, T


This CRC report presents the findings on the Scoping out a Socio economic research agenda for CRC for sustainable rice production. The project was undertaken using literature and interviews. As a result a modified framework contained four components including drivers for change; changes in technology and the institutional arrangements; socio-economic effects of changes on the irrigated rice system and the subsequent response; and flow-on socio-economic effects outside the irrigated rice system and the subsequent response. The report examines each of the four components of the research framework and discusses the nature of research, which may be undertaken under each one.
