Developing strategies for different systems of small ruminant production based on farmers’ perceptions of change by Dr. Shadi Hamade

ESDU Director Dr. Shadi Hamadeh participated in the third Agriculture and Climate Change Conference (Budapest, March 24-26), where he presented outcomes of the research that he conducted with Mabelle Chedid (ESDU-FAFS) and Katharina Diehl (Institute of Earth and Environmental Science, University of Potsdam): Developing strategies for different systems of small ruminant production based on farmers’ perceptions of change.

The research objective was to investigate the perception of change among small ruminant farmers in the West Bekaa, Lebanon, with the goal of identifying methodologies that incorporate those perceptions into planning processes, particularly in situations characterized by dispersed stakeholders pursuing strategies independently and with little coordination within the farmer group.​​
