The present study aims to identify different kinds of rural non-farm activity, types of economic initiatives and ideas, factors underlying the adoption or non-adoption of these varied activities as well as income and labor inputs for these activities. At the level of the rural household, we sought to identify the key obstacles, positive factors, and possible avenues of future non-farm activity development in Armenian villages through meetings and discussions with the rural population of Armenia.
