Determining priorities in rural communities in Jamaica (PLA 43)
This article details a method of assessing development needs of a region. With three different villages represented in a consultative group, each with their own development needs, four different methods of prioritising were used. Differing results were achieved with each method, and overall this gave a more robust list of developmental goals, while allowing participants exposure to many different methodologies.
