Document begins: PLA Notes CD-ROM 19882001 10 Extract form: Research report series no. 4, February 1991: participatory rural appraisal for Nepal: concepts and methods. A guide to the slide presentation Lorna Campbell and Gerard J Gill The extract illustrated here shows the use of some PRA techniques to investigate issues relating to family planning. Slide 110 Slide 112 Pie diagram This was used to discover the overall preference among family planning methods, showing vasectomy as the most popular. Slide 111 Time line This gives a record of the arrival of different family planning methods, detailed by the farmers, in the village. It shows how long people have been exposed to different methods and through what channel they received the information. The dates recorded on the chart were not actually given by the farmers but they referred to major events, like the earthquake, in a more general time line. The slide shows information given by two informants, one on the left and one on the right, and illustrates the importance of cross-checking, or triangulation, of information. The informants became aware of different methods at different times. The reason for this could be investigated further. 1 Source: RRA Notes (1992), Issue 16, ...
