This series is based upon work carried out under the socioeconomics research programme at NRI. Its purpose is to provide an easily accesible medium for current research findings. Whilst it is hoped that the series will be of interest to those concerned with development issues worldwide, it may be of particular relevance to people working in the developing countries.

The topics covered by the series are quite diverse, but principally relate to applied and adaptive research activity and findings. Some papers are largely descriptive, others concentrate on analytical issues, or relate to research methodologies.

The aim is to present material in as straightforward a fashion as possible so that it can reach a wide audience. We are interested in the views and opinions of readers and welcome any feedback to this series.
