On Networking # 14

* FSSP Core/FSSP Network Communication Policy Update. The Core
apologizes for any confusion caused by the "FSSP Core/FSSP Network
Communication Policy Change #1" statement contained in On Networking
#11. While the FSSP Core now communicates directly with Program
Associates (PAs), both routinely and for within-network biodata
searches, responsibility lies with each PA contacted to clear any
possible assignments with your department or unit head and your
respective Program Leader (PL) or Administrative Coordinator (AC),
whichever is your particular Support Entity's official contact. This
approach was confirmed by the Advisory Council and the Administrative
Coordinators at the Annual Meetings Oct. 11-12, 1984. It is not the
intent of the new FSSP communication policy change to circumvent
time-tested and proven departmental communication channels. The sole
intent of the new communication policy is to speed up the communication
process between the FSSP Core and the PAs which comprise the FSSP

* The FSSP and the Population Council have agreed to co-sponsor the
development of a series of case studies on "Intra-Household Dynamics in
Farming Systems Research and Extension." Case study material will be
drawn from previous field research and reformulated into training
documents to be used by FSSP and other institutions in orientation and
training courses for administrators and practitioners and by
universities undertaking teaching and research in these areas. The
objective is to detail several examples of agriculture under conditions
of change and demonstrate how an understanding of the intra-familial
division of resources and benefits can better inform the choices at
various decision points in the FSR process. Cornelia Flora, Kansas
State University, has prepared a project paper laying out the
objectives and challenges of this task. We will be looking for
material which demonstrates the interaction between the systems and
their relationship to increasing agricultural productivity and for
examples where such data has been collected and analyzed but not widely
disseminated. Project managers for the series are Susan Poats of the
FSSP and Judith Bruce of the Population Council. The managing editor
is Hilary Sims Feldstein who has worked in rural development in the
U.S. and Kenya and with case studies at Harvard and the Population
Council. A six-member Advisory Committee, representative of agronomic
and social science research, is being formed which will help to develop
the format for the cases and the procedures and criteria for selection
of case material. Contact Hilary Feldstein at (603) 525-3772, (RFD 1,
Box 821, Hancock, NH 03449) for more details.
