Publication year: 
1995

The conclusion to the special edition of the journal on PRA, this article highlights some of the dangers of using PRA. In particular, the inappropriate use of PRA where funding agencies demand it, but NGO staff are not competent to use it. Where staff and NGOs have adopted the use of PRA it is often carried out in isolation, the findings ignored and the project continued without a change of direction.

Interest groups: 
Of interest to those concerned with the use of PRA at project and planning level as well as fieldworkers.
