Reflections on practical ethics for participatory community-based adaptation (PLA 60)

This article consists of extracts come from two articles previously published in Participatory Learning and Action. Both extracts contain the same key message: that good participatory practice needs to be based on a solid foundation of practical ethics which focus on empowerment. The first extract is from an article in PLA Notes 22, and details some key guiding principles for participatory development practice. The next extract is from an article on participatory ethics in PLA 54 Mapping for Change. As we move forward with community-based adaptation to climate change, these guiding principles provide a timely and relevant reflection on good practice for participatory development.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board. See: www.planotes.org
