RRA methodologies workshop in Thailand: a new initiative
The Northeast Rainfed Agricultural Development Project in Khon Kaen recently convened a three day workshop in Korat for 70 staff from government agencies and regional universities. Many of the participants have long been at the forefront of developing and using RRA approaches. Indeed, as many will know, the papers presented at the International RRA Conference in 1985 held at the Khon Kaen University still represent a major proportion of the published material on RRA. But many practitioners in Thailand have recently come to recognise that adoption of RRA into Government programs has been slower than wished. Thus the NERAD Project felt that it was a good time to set in motion the process of production of a series of user-oriented handbooks.
