Another Countryside is the Weblog page of researchers, staff and associates of the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) at the University of the Western Cape. PLAAS is a policy research organization focussing on issues of rural poverty, agrarian change, land reform, agriculture and food security in Southern Africa. The aim of this website is to educate and to inform debate on these issues, and to do so in a stimulating and provocative way. Views expressed on this website are the opinions of the authors, and do not reflect the views either of PLAAS or of the University.
