About this eBook

content and conduct of a program or policy desined to change their lives. Built on a belief that citizens can be trusted to shape their own future, participatory development uses local decision making and capacities to steer and define the nature of an intervention. Studies on participatory programming have found that such methods often cost less in the long run and are consistently more effective at getting assistance where it needs to go. Such methods were also found to be unmatched in fostering sustainability, strengthening local self-help capacities and in improving the status of women and youth. Finally, by establishing platforms where organizations may access and involve citizens in their programs, participatory development methods often extended the reach of traditional development approaches by leveraging local resources with national and foreign assets. Participatory approaches are a product of long lasting interaction between researchers, development workers, government agents and local populations. The subject matter in this text book is the result of an effort to bring together the best information available in literature. However, there is still great scope for improvement in the
