Participatory project development and management

Publication year: 

In this book, the author seeks to portray the process of community organising as a collective endeavour where the people are the principal actors and the community organisers serve only as facilitators. He proposes that community organising is only meaningful if it promotes the continuing capability building, self reliance and empowerment of the people. The book uses down-to-earth language and begins by presenting the context and significance of planning and management from the people, for the people. The basic concepts and processes of this view are discussed and specific guidelines for implementation are given. Case studies from the Philippines on participatory planning and management are presented and analysed, and finally synthesised in a comic strip.
