Abstract
Triple-win projects have been failing in Sub-Saharan Africa. The top-down approach of policymakers and donors lead to the priorities of local stakeholders not being accounted for which in turn leads to trade-offs. Instead of disregarding triple-wins, researchers have suggested they could be used as building blocks in the emerging pathways literature, therefore accounting for a broader set of goals. However, there is no empirical evidence of this. Thus, aim of this thesis is to explore to what extent understanding the priorities a group of local stakeholders can indicate where interventions would have the best chance of success. To do so, semi-structed interviews were conducted with 10 large-scale farmers in South Africa. A Content Analysis... (More)
Triple-win projects have been failing in Sub-Saharan Africa. The top-down approach of policymakers and donors lead to the priorities of local stakeholders not being accounted for which in turn leads to trade-offs.

However, there is no empirical evidence of this. Thus, aim of this thesis is to explore to what extent understanding the priorities a group of local stakeholders can indicate where interventions would have the best chance of success. To do so, semi-structed interviews were conducted with 10 large-scale farmers in South Africa. A Content Analysis tool, derived in Pathways literature, was applied. The outcomes show understanding the priorities of the farmers provides a strong indication of where interventions would have the best chance of success, indicating triple-wins could function within pathways.
