Researchers assessed how agricultural and ”secondary” agricultural activities influenced the economic strategies and impacted the economic situation of people living in a rural agricultural zone in Western Mali. Researchers conducted a field study of 60 sample rural households through interviews with individuals including the household head, other married men, unmarried men, younger married woman, and older married women. Researchers gathered data on agricultural and non-agricultural activities, income and expenditures. Researchers held workshops on their findings with NGOs, IO, government organizations, and interested parties.
