Tips for trainers: experiences of PRA in China (PLA Notes 47)

Li Ou

Journal article

Encouraging the use of Participatory Rural Appraisals (PRA) in China has not been entirely successful, partly due to the fact that Chinese organisations are not accustomed to applying a bottom-up approach. This Tips for Trainers outlines how PRA can be applied in China, but also questions that should be considered when carrying out PRA in any environment.

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’.
