Questions of Difference: PRA, gender and environment. A Training Video (NTSC)
Two hours of thought-provoking images in the overview and case studies can be used to stimulate discussion and lead into class-based exercises.
The Overview presents a summary of the key elements for using PRA to understand gender and environment. Structured as a series of short thematic segments ranging from 2-14 minutes, trainers can select sections to stimulate discussion for specific training objectives. The sections deal with People's Roles, Images and Realities, Key Questions, An Introduction to PRA, Thinking about Communication, PRA Methods for Analysis, Revealing Difference.
The Case Studies show workshop participants using PRA methods to explore gender and environment issues in the field. Each case study takes place in a unique socio-cultural and environmental setting, allowing the trainer to choose the most appropriate context for specific training needs. The case studies (28 minutes each) can be used as fieldwork examples or for more extended class-based analysis, together with the handouts in the Trainer's Guide. The case studies consist of (1) Exploring Mangrove Use in Pakistan; (2) Exploring Drylands Use in Burkina Faso; (3) Exploring Biodiversity in Brazil.
