Social Systems and Allied Research


Social System and Allied Research focuses on the economic, social and sustainable dimensions of limited resource farmers, ranchers, families and communities. This unit works closely with the other focus units to examine a number of socioeconomic factors, which include but not limited to small farm profitability and sustainability, food security/insecurity, family and community well-being, and environmental and policy impacts. The unit uses a multidisciplinary approach in addressing problems relevant to the mission, goals and objectives of the CARC.
