Chapter Preview


PPA initiates a participatory method that thrives in the viewpoint of Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA). They become key to mechanisms for advance policy agency by embodiment of the community’s participation. PRA has been seen as a family of approaches and methods to enable local people to share and analyse their knowledge of life and conditions, and to plan and to act (Chambers, 1994). It emerged in the early 1990s, building on insights and methodological innovations from various study methods. Agro-ecosystem analysis provided the series of diagramming, mapping, scoring and grading methods of the different natural processes; insight provided by the work of practical and development anthropologists and those of field research in farming systems emphasised villagers’ capability in conducting their own personal analysis; and most notably there was the development of Rapid Rural Appraisal (RRA) (Laderchi, 2001).
