Embracing participation in development: wisdom from the field

Publication year: 
1999

This manual draws on CARE's field experience in working with communities using participatory approaches. Part One uses case studies from countries such as Bangladesh, Madagascar, Somalia and Peru to review and critique CARE's experience with participatory approaches. Part Two focuses on conceptual reflections, which include looking at participation and the project cycle as well as using quantitative surveys to complement PLA findings. Part Three gives a comprehensive step by step guide to participatory tools and techniques, which is preceded by an overview of PLA and finishes with a look at tackling documentation, analysis, synthesis and report writing.
