will stress two points in this
presentation

The need to preserve the diversity
that exists, and is a necessary
strategy for smal I holder f armers, and
A participatory methodology we are
developing and using that incorporates
new ways to combine ethnography,
participatory methods and
mathematical modeling that does
preserve diversity,

The rigor involved in simulating their
livelihood systems with the ELP model
helps us understand their heritage,
needs, desires and constraints.

Beyond food needs
there are always cash needs.

Needs and sources, as well as
resources can be very seasonal









After simulating the livelihood system,
based on several households, we select
other households to verify that we can
accurately model the diverse
livelihood strategies of different
households in that livelihood system








At this point, using the models we can
begin to test alternative strategies
such as new technologies
or the potential effects of new
infrastructure or policy,

And it can also
reduce the time between

One is that there is a great deal of
diversity among smallholders, as well
as among large farms, even in
seemingly homogeneous communities,








So that technologies, poli
infrastr4Tuctur nd even
regulations must b designd
serve theinees of a very^
diverse cientele,







The second is that there exists an
effective and efficient methodology
to preserve this diversity
so that smallholders in all
socioeconomic and biophysical
situations can benefit
from improved technology,
policies and infrastructure.
