Editor: The NGO TREE AID have been using the RHoMIS tool for almost three years, with over twelve implementations of the survey. We have provided a customised questionnaire and data analysis code to support their excellent work. Following on from their recent blog article ‘Using Technology to maximise our impact’, we interviewed David Baines, their Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (MEL) Advisor. The interview below helps us to understand a bit more about how RHoMIS is used and the impact we have had on international development.
Identifying gender inequalities and trade-offs in agriculture systems using RHoMIS
Scientists and development practitioners around the world are working with smallholder farmers to transform their agricultural practices to better adapt to, and even mitigate, climate change. The international development community has prioritized two strategies in this regard - increasing the sale of crop and livestock products through increased market participation (commercialization) and increasing the number of crop and livestock species on-farm (diversification).
However, little is known as to the gendered impacts of these changes and specifically, whether these strategies may intensify inequalities between men and women.
The RHoMIS blog is written by a community of practice. The COP is made up of RHoMIS users and creators from across the world. Here we share their stories of how RHoMIS is helping to record and analyse household data.
