Natural resources, people and participation (PLA 50)

Michel Pimbert

Journal article

This article highlights some key lessons from experiences on livelihoods and natural resources presented in past issues of Participatory Learning and Action, and offers critical reflections. The author gives an analysis, rather than a description of trends, emphasing future challenges and opportunities.

This special anniversary issue of Participatory Learning and Action contains articles by previous guest-editors and authors from the last 20 years who were invited to revisit their contributions and provide an update on current thinking. The overview reflects on the overlapping themes and parallels in the lessons learnt and suggestions for ways forward.

Guest editors: Robert Chambers, Nicole Kenton and Holly Ashley

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods.
