Message from Dr. P. Anandajayasekeram,
President of the Association for Farming
Systems Research-Extension: AFSR-E

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from Africa. As you are all aware, the arrangements for the 15'
International Symposium are at the advanced stages. The various
committees are doing a fantastic job. Despite the budget constraints
confronting the national and international development-related
institutions, the financial support that we have received so far isalso very
encouraging.

The response for the call for papers was overwhelming. This is a
testimony to the world that the FSR community is very active and the FSR
approach is being well accepted and integrated into th-e t.:hniil.:;,
development and transfer process. As the community expands, the
environment continues to change, and with the emergence of strong
regional association, there is a need to re-examine the roles and
responsibilities of the global mother association. We also need to make
some serious decisions about the future of the FSR-E journal. A sub-
committee is currently working on the revision of the constitution and
some of the senior members are coming up with proposals for the future
of the journal. All these important issues will be discussed during our
business meeting in.Pretoria. So, please make sure that all of you are
present at the 15"' symposium, and in addition to sharing your technical
knowledge, play your responsible roles as members of the association in
charting outthe future.

Looking forward to seeing you all in South Africa.

Message from Derek Hanekom, Minister for Agriculture and Land Affairs


Addressing poverty and achieving food security are key objectives of the Rome Declaration on World
Food Security for the first twenty years of the next millennium. And, in South Africa, we are determined
to ensure that agriculture plays a major role in dealing with these issues.

We see the agricultural sector I'. ..;li;3 employment and livelihoods to the disadvantaged; increasing
rural incomes so that the rural poor have resources to buy food they cannot produce; and providing food
to the rural and urban sectors at internationally competitive prices.

To ensure a competitive sector, we have removed a whole series of market distortions, especially on the
trade, marketing and financial fronts, that encouraged capital intensive production in products
where South Africa had limited comparative advantage. As a result, South Africa is today experiencing a
boom in production and exports of highly labour intensive and high value crops.

At the same time, we are placing enormous emphasis on building up a range of farmers from the resource
poor to medium-scale and large commercial farmers -- all with security of tenure. Our land reform
programme is helping the resource poor buy farms by accessing government grants, and appropriate
complementary measures are being established to ensure their success. Through its multiplier effect, the
land reform programme will have a marked impact on the growth of on and off-farm employment, and
on the rural economy as a whole.

To achieve our objectives, we need to have appropriate technologies for all our farmers. Traditionally,
South Africa has had an outstanding system of agricultural research. This research was, however, oriented
to our large commercial farming sector. As a result, less attention was paid to the needs of small farmers
who often encounter different opportunities and constraints for example they have surplus labour but
face particular capital and risk constraints.

We need to take advantage of the work done by other countries and institutions in this area.

Since our first democratic elections in 1994, the Department, alongside other government
organizations, has been collaborating on a number of bilateral projects with overseas institutions. These
projects deal with farming systems and natural resource management, and are of a participatory nature,
giving farmers a voice in their own development programmes and tapping into those areas where small
farmers have competitive .:1a:img:, usually with labour intensive technologies.

It is also our desire to see the integration of the development of farming systems and participatory
natural resource management paradigms into all our research and training institutions.

In this context, the Departments of Agriculture and Land Affairs support the Farming Systems Approach
to wise land use and sustainable agricultural development for all its farmers modern large-scale,
emerging, traditional, smallholder and subsistence farmers men and women.

We believe thatthere are many lessons to be learnt from and within the global fraternity, and we take
pleasure in inviting you to join us in this international symposium, so that we can share our experiences,
and so thatyou can enjoy the hospitality of our government and our wonderful country.


Derek Hanekom
Minister for Agriculture and Land Affairs











15TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM OF THE ASSOCIATION
FOR FARMING SYSTEMS RESEARCH-EXTENSION (AFSR-E)


The South African Association for Farming Systems Research is proud to host the 1998 AFSR-E
Symposium in Pretoria, South Africa, from 29 November to 3 December 1998. A country of
extraordinary history, South Africa offers its visitors and conference delegates a host of scenic attractions,
incredible wildlife and a diversity of ethnic groups, cultures, creeds and languages.

The 1998 AFSR-E Symposium will be held on the Campus of the University of Pretoria. Pretoria, the
administrative capital of South Africa, is situated some 50 km north of Johannesburg gracious and
peaceful, yet boasting anr infrastructure comparable with any international city, and renowned for its
excellent restaurants, shopping facilities, tourist attractions and beautiful gardens and open spaces.

The Symposium takes place in early summer, with Pretoria generally experiencing warm days, with
short afternoon summer showers and balmy evenings. Average temperatures range from 18-25
degrees centigrade during the day with cool, but seldom cold nights.

The theme of the symposium is "Rural livelihoods, empowerment and the environment: Going beyond
the farm :I iundai '.

Environment is interpreted very broadly to include physical, biological, social, economic, and
institutional dimensions within which a farming community lives and operates. The theme addresses
some very fundamental questions, which need in-depth analysis and debate:

How do concepts such as sustainable agjir.ultuI'-, sustainable development, participation,
empowerment, accountability, indigenous knowledge, poverty alleviation and environmental
conservation affect the Farming Systems Approach (FSA)? How is the small scale farming family affected
by global change in society, markets, trading blocks, and the economy? How can FSA respond
appropriately so thatthe global environment will sustain agriculture in the future?
The symposium will try to weave together an understanding of the social, economic and natural resource
aspects of farming systems and the environment. Socially, democratisation and privatization are having
major effects on the very fabric of society. In spite of talk of empowerment of women and the poor,
economic growth is often achieved at greater cost to the marginalised in society. Natural resources are
increasingly under pressure due to population growth and creeping industrialisation.

TRAINING TOOLS BAZAAR



A Training Tools Bazaar will be held on Tuesday afternoon a practitioner oriented marketplace where training
tools/material are shared, displayed, explained or demonstrated, through which delegates can browse at leisure.
If you have experience & information on training in FSR-E & would like to make that expertise available to
delegates attending the symposium, your contributions will be welcome. No tool/technique is too small or too
large to consider and do not feel confined by the terms tools and techniques. The bazaar provides an
opportunity to share anything and everything trainers would find useful in expanding the current knowledge and
skills of FSR/E. Interested participants should indicate their interest on the registration form an'd further details
and application for participation will be forwarded.






PANEL DISCUSSION SESSIONS



These discussions are rather informal evening debating sessions. The topic will be put up on the Symposium
Bulletin Board. If you have a particular interest in a specific topic, e.g. commercialization of small-scale
agriculture, or working with farmer groups please let the symposium organizers know. You can then introduce
the topic and invite discussion and debate. In the end it would be preferred if some rnit-.-l..n for further action
arises from the discussions, e.g. decision to establish a special interest group.
