Participatory Techniques for Community Forestry: A Field Manual
This manual provides a source book of ideas about participatory techniques. It begins by answering some common questions about participatory techniques and describing RRA and PRA approaches in the context of community forestry. It then provides guidelines on how to use RRA and PRA tools and methods in the field.
Whose reality counts? Putting the first last
Robert Chambers argues that central issues in development have been overlooked and that many past errors have flowed from domination by those with power. Through analysing experience - of past mistakes and myths and of the continuing methodological revolution of PRA - the author points towards solutions. He argues that personal, professional and instiutional change is essential if the realities of the poor are to receive greater recognition.
