Sustainable Intensification - Laos
Sustainable intensification (SI) of farming systems aims to increase food production from existing farmland in ways that have a lower environmental impact and maintain the food production capacity over time. There are concerns about the sustainability of the maize mono-cropping systems that are in use in Laos today. Therefore, to explore the potential adoption of alternative agricultural systems, I teamed up with Dr. Juliette Lairez (UPR AIDA, CIRAD) to construct and run a survey where we would explore farmers ranking of objectives when making decisions (using a Best-Worst Scaling approach, and explore farmers’ preferences for technological attributes using a discrete choice experiment (DCE).
