If you were a subscriber to Spore in 1997, you may have participated in the evaluation conducted to assess the relevance and (cost-)effectiveness of Spore, and to work out plans for our future. Questionnaires were distributed to a sample of 7,452 subscribers in August 1997, and we would like to thank the 1,470 readers who replied. The survey showed that about three-quarters of all subscribers have a university degree. One-third are farmers, or people working in villages; almost one-fifth are extension workers, and people working in food processing and commerce. The others are largely in academic and research organisations, and about one in ten is involved in policy making and planning, or the management of public, NGO or commercial services. Less than 10% of subscribers are women. Since gender issues are now high on CTA's list of priorities, this is something we shall be turning our attention to. Recent changes to the presentation of Spore reflect subscribers' backgrounds and preferences. These include practical information for agricultural production, as well as for policy, marketing, environmental and social aspects.
