The trouble with PRA: reflections on dilemmas of quality (PLA Notes 47)

Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) has quickly become an important and influential tool in development project planning, and is used by many of the big development agencies. The authors reflect on this rapid uptake, and critically assess whether this is positive for the quality of research.

Participatory Learning and Action is the world’s leading informal journal on participatory approaches. Guest editors provide up-to-the minute accounts of participatory approaches in specific fields. Since 1987, PLA has provided a forum for participatory practitioners – community workers, activists and researchers – to share experiences, reflections and methodological innovations with others, providing a genuine ‘voice from the field’.
