Learning from analysis

Publication year: 
1999

This special edition of PLA notes looks at Learning from Analysis. Where does participation in analysis begin and end? When does it happen and how and by whom is local learning represented? The articles in this issue discuss what happens when data is "collected", discussed, summarised and shared, where priorities are made and action points agreed. Insights are shared from community-based analysis of gender differences in Uganda, poverty assessment in the UK, and irrigation planning in Peru. Challenges are raised by experiences with the analysis of rural views for policy audiences in India and Malawi, and with municipal planning in Brazil. Facilitation-related questions are discussed by examining well-being assessment in London and training manual development in El Salvador.
