Using the sustainable livelihoods framework to evaluate the impact of a farmer-to-farmer video on the <br />improved rice parboiling technology, women in Benin rated financial, social, human, natural and physical <br />capital stocks for the baseline year (2006) and the impact year (2009) on a 0–5 scale. Women who had <br />watched the video and those who had not, but who lived in the same villages, perceived a significant <br />improvement in four out of five livelihood capitals while processors in control villages did not perceive any <br />significant change. Apart from testing the sustainable livelihoods conceptual framework as a participatory <br />impact assessment tool for video-mediated rural learning, this study shows how farmer-to-farmer training <br />videos helped to improve multiple livelihood assets.
