A rough guide to PPAs: Participatory Poverty Assessment: an introduction to theory and practice

Publication year: 

The aim of PPAs is to improve the effectiveness of public action for poverty reduction by including the views, priorities and perspectives of poor people in the analysis of what should be done. This guide is designed to help answer some key questions related to the development of a PPA: how to assess whether a PPA will be useful; how to decide where a PPA should be located institutionally; how to build the initial partnerships; how to design the process; how to enhance quality in the fieldwork and analysis: how to ensure influence on policy. The guide draws extensively on experience from two strong case study examples, the Uganda Participatory Poverty Assessment Process and the Vietnam PPA.
