Anantapur Experiment in 'PRA' training

Publication year: 

This five day training in PRA for officers on a Government watershed programme in Andhra Pradesh, India, had two main objectives : i) to plan the watershed programme with the communities ii) to build up a team spirit and better communication between members of the watershed teams (made up of different government departments). The report concentrates more on the latter objective and does not give any detail of the fieldwork or findings. The training programme consisted of theoretical sessions (cartoons are included in the report) followed by a three night stay by the 16 teams in 16 villages. Administrative constraints are briefly analysed.

Interest groups: 
This report would be useful to trainers at field level planning a short training programme, particularly for government officials.
