Participatory assessment and the Twenty Points of Progress Programme : the experience from Mexico

Publication year: 

This paper describes the field-test of the Twenty Points of Progress Programme (20PPP) presently being implemented by an NGO called Choice Humanitarian in Guanajuato, Mexico. This is a participatory methodology for systematically measuring and assessing the impact of village development programs, which is participatory in nature, has a specific commitment to community action planning and encourages network development between communities governments and NGOs. Having described the development and implementation of the programme it goes on to look at outcomes and lessons learned, concluding that the 20PPP provides a short, simple, inexpensive and flexible approach to measuring village progress and mobilising community action.
