Networking with other researchers interested in
livelihoods diversification in rural Africa led to the
proposal of a special issue of the journal Food Policy to
the new editors, based at Wye College, U.K. The
proposal was accepted and the special issue on "Income
Diversification and Livelihoods in Rural Africa: Cause
and Consequence of Change" will be the journal's only
special issue of 2001, tentatively scheduled for June
2001 publication. Guest editors of the special issue are
Barrett, Reardon, and Patrick Webb of Tufts University
(not affiliated with this project). Paper submissions have
been invited and are undergoing peer review.

farmers. Researchers will assess farmers "with" and
"without" the scheme (e.g. non-participant farmers from
the adjacent area).
Through a household level user survey, researchers will
develop a database to quantify the amount of water
demanded by activity and season. Such information,
complemented by secondary data, will provide a basis for
analysis. It will also provide to the Mwea irrigation
authorities better information about delivery system
efficiency. The survey will be carried out during the
production season, with particular attention to
waterlirrigation use by activity and time for both
participant and non-participant households.
Researchers will produce a final report and non-technical
policy memo(s) with emphasis on steps and approaches
to implement the study findings. A seminar will be held
to discuss and disseminate study results and implications.
Relevant data sets will be organizedlcreated in such a
way as to be useful for irrigation authorities, policy
makers, scheme farmers, and other interested researchers.

A Participatory Research Program
Reports from the first phase of the research have been
written in Kiswahili and distributed in the villages.
The research has a database resulting from a 20-page
questionnaire administered to 80 randomly chosen
informants in each of the two villages studied intensively.
A two-day workshop was held in Dar es Salaam on
Community Participation. Participants included 15
villagers, 15 staff members of the Irrigation Section, 15
officials from the Ministry of Water, Ministry of
Community Development, Cooperative Department, local
government technical officers from the areas of the
research, and 15 representatives of NGOs, training
