Searching for participatory approaches: findings of the Yunnan PRA Network
Participatory approaches were introduced to Yunnan Province in the People's Republic of China in 1993. Since then, a group of practitioners in Yunnan has started to search for ways of implementing participatory approaches within the Chinese context. This paper summarises the major findings of the practitioners' experiences in research, action and extension projects, and presents the state of the practitioners' theoretical thoughts on participation at the time of publication of issue 37 of PLA Notes(2000).
