  7. 7. Help Appreciate Alternative Pathways Overall Aims Method alone can’t do whole job: also involves encompassing process
  8. 8. Help Appreciate Alternative Pathways Method underpins both understanding and judgement; knowledge and action Method alone can’t do whole job: also involves encompassing process Overall Aims
  9. 9. Help Appreciate Alternative Pathways Method underpins both understanding and judgement; knowledge and action Critical focus on alternatives: reflecting and favouring marginal interests Method alone can’t do whole job: also involves encompassing process Overall Aims
  10. 10. STEPS Methodology: An ordered repertoire of conditionally-appropriate methods Help Appreciate Alternative Pathways Method underpins both understanding and judgement; knowledge and action Critical focus on alternatives: reflecting and favouring marginal interests Repertoires: sensitive to context, positioning and plural views and pathways Method alone can’t do whole job: also involves encompassing process Overall Aims
  11. 11. Intervention histories / futures - narratives, interventions, futures Innovation histories - deep history, broad of innovation Deliberative / Multicriteria mapping - values, knowledges, pathways Open Space Technology - diversity, passion, responsibility Participatory Impact Pathways Analysis - planning, monitoring, impacts Participatory Rural Appraisal - empowering marginal voices Participatory Scenarios - alternative views of drivers of change Photovoice - participants is the researcher Q Method - makes contrasting discourses visible Scientometric Mapping - makes research more accountable Sensitivity Analysis - destabilises technocratic modelling Sociotechnical Imaginaries - pluralises foundations for politics System Histories - grounded contrasts in system frames Some Indicative Examples

  13. 13. ENGAGE ACTORS help appreciate alternative pathwaysBASIC STEPS EXPLORE NARRATIVES CHARACTERISE DYNAMICS REVEAL STRATEGIES A: ENGAGE ACTORS - together: 1: review relevant histories 2: analyse associated networks 3: snowball salient interests 4: prioritise most marginal 5: examine power relations 6: identify basic pathway visions 7: be alert for hidden plurality 8: seek critical feedback
  14. 14. KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE Looking at alternative pathways for agricultural livelihoods around Sakai and Mmbasu in East & West Provinces of Kenya Involving STEPs with African Centre for Technology Studies Centre for African Bio-Entrepreneurship Tegemeo Institute, Egerton University images and results courtesy of John Thompson, et al, STEPS A: ENGAGE ACTORS - together: 1: review relevant histories 2: analyse associated networks 3: snowball salient interests 4: prioritise most marginal 5: examine power relations 6: identify basic pathway visions 7: be alert for hidden plurality 8: seek critical feedback
  15. 15. KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE A: ENGAGE ACTORS - together: 1: review relevant histories 2: analyse associated networks 3: snowball salient interests 4: prioritise most marginal 5: examine power relations 6: identify basic pathway visions 7: be alert for hidden plurality 8: seek critical feedback Scoping interviews Historic panel data Trends analysis Rapid rural appraisals Focus groups Key informant interviews Disaggregate gender, wealth, productivity Focus on 5 “low potential” villages (Sakai) also 3 “high potential” villages (Mmbasu)
  16. 16. B: EXPLORE NARRATIVES 1: review relevant histories 2: elicit notions of systems 3: explore related framings 4: address Sustainability values 5: scope possible pathways 6: review aspects of incertitude 7: differentiate perspectives 8: seek critical feedback KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE Explore framings: particularly ideas about ‘resilience’, ‘innovation’ and ‘pathways‘ Test concepts in relation to environmental change and maize in Kenya
  17. 17. B: EXPLORE NARRATIVES 1: review relevant histories 2: elicit notions of systems 3: explore related framings 4: address Sustainability values 5: scope possible pathways 6: review aspects of incertitude 7: differentiate perspectives 8: seek critical feedback KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE Low Maize High Maize Low- External Input High- External Input

  19. 19. C CHARACTERISE DYNAMICS: 1: review relevant histories 2: explore challenges/opportunities 3: scrutinise likely shocks/stresses 4: look at actors’ strength/weakness 5: examine decision/branch points 6: identify winners/losers 7: attend to issues of power/politics 8: seek critical feedback KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE Alternative dryland staples for subsistence Alternative dryland staples for market Local improvement of local maize Assisted seed multiplication of maize Assisted seed multiplication of alternative dryland staples Individual high-value crop commercialization Group-based high-value crop commercialization Commercial delivery of new DT maize varieties Public delivery of new DT maize varieties
  20. 20. C CHARACTERISE DYNAMICS: 1: review relevant histories 2: explore challenges/opportunities 3: scrutinise likely shocks/stresses 4: look at actors’ strength/weakness 5: examine decision/branch points 6: identify winners/losers 7: attend to issues of power/politics 8: seek critical feedback KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE pathways served as starting point for opening up the discussion with farmers, scientists and policy makers on: Diversity of pathways in and out of maize Relevant criteria for choosing one pathway over another Alternative visions of the future and institutional support arrangements
  21. 21. REVEAL STRATEGIES D: REVEAL POLITICAL ACTIONS 1: review relevant histories 2: confirm key protagonists 3: explore forms of agency 4: define possible interventions 5: identify coping strategies 6: examine possible responses 7: establish accountabilities 8: seek critical feedback KENYA MAIZE RESILIENCE Quantitative and qualitative data from multicriteria mapping Interviews and group discussions prompted by this process

  24. 24. Pathways Out of Maize: Orphans or Siblings? Performance rankings for different groups of stakeholders shows a surprising amount of optimism about alternative dryland staple crops, especially under a set of stress tolerance criteria
  25. 25. Pathways in Maize: Sakai farmer performance rankings show a preference for local maize, not new maize
