Participatory Rural Appraisal and Planning Handbook

This workbook goes further than describing the "what" and "how" of the now well-known family of PRA tools. Almost half of the book focuses on planning, the all-too-often missing link in PRA practice. It shows readers how to use the information generated by participatory appraisal methods to make feasibility matrices, SWOT charts, and planning matrices. The workbook describes ways to design realistic projects involving community members who participated in the appraisal phase of PRA.
