Knowledge-based participatory action research

Krystyna Swiderska, Janna Tenzing

Book/Report, 4 pages

This document is part of the ‘Better Evidence in Action’ toolkit.

Knowledge-based participatory action research seeks to maximise the use of local and traditional knowledge and strengthen local knowledge systems, while also enabling communities to lead conventional research to generate qualitative and quantitative knowledge that is scientifically credible. It empowers communities by recognising the value of their own knowledge and strengthening their capacity to produce knowledge that is useful to others, such as governments.
