Publication year: 
1994

Using PRA techniques to collect information for the purposes of policy analysis, raises different issues from using PRA in an NGO project context. Training exercises for policy-oriented PRA need to be "custom-designed" for government staff who tend to have a more "top-down" approach, work in discrete departments and have restricted time for learning PRA. The article suggests how to plan a training programme in view of these points.

Interest groups: 
Trainers of trainers, trainers, planners and policy makers (all in a Government context) would find these suggestions for training useful.
