SIFOR Survey Questionnaires (community)
The common community level survey questionnaire developed for the SIFOR baseline study by IIED and partners. SIFOR (Smallholder Innovation for Resilience) is a five year EU funded project initiated in August 2012. The survey was conducted in 2013 in indigenous farming communities in China, Peru, Kenya and India. It covers status and trends in livelihoods, crop diversity, social capital, climate and innovation.
IIED is working with partners in China, India, Kenya and Peru to revitalise traditional knowledge-based – or 'biocultural' – innovation systems of smallholder farmers in order to strengthen food security in the face of climate change. Traditional farmers continually improve and adapt their crops and farming practices in response to new challenges, using local knowledge and biodiversity, generating new technologies and practices.
