A New Dryland Development Paradigm Grounded In Empirical Analysis of Dryland Systems Science
MetadataShow full item record
Global drylands face a host of urgent human and environmental challenges with farreaching impacts Improving smallholder agriculture remains a key development pathway to tackle these challenges The dryland development paradigm DDP introduced in 2007 presented a highly influential framework for dryland development based on systems research This paper empirically derives a new updated DDP It assesses recent cuttingedge dryland science combining literature review with qualitative and quantitative analysis of research published by the worlds largest dryland science and development research initiative The new DDP comprises eight characteristics that are distilled into three integrative principles Unpack Traverse and Share The new DDP is applied and tested to identify key dryland knowledge and development gaps A future research agenda is then elucidated grounded in a research in development approach in which research anchored in the three integrative principles is embedded within the context it seeks to improve Supported by greater transdisciplinarity and knowledge coproduction operationalization of the new DDP can deliver both novel scientific insights and development impact in line with the aspirations of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals Copyright 2017 John Wiley Sons Ltd
