Fighting rural poverty and inequality requires a closer relationship
between agricultural research and interagency commitments necessary to
balance the demands of small farmers with technological innovation and
the establishment of effective policies to ensure the reduction of
persistent technology gap in the field.
In order to institutionalize participatory methodologies, the Andean
Change Programme proposes a methodological framework, which seeks to
provide conceptual and methodological elements to develop Advocacy Plans
based primarily on evidence collected from the participatory research
This methodological framework was designed particularly for
institutions, foundations, and other professionals dedicated to rural
development issues and involved in participatory research processes that
require the formulation of Advocacy Plans to promote political dialogue
between stakeholders and policy makers.
