  • 29 REASONS FOR CAUTION… •  Getting people to participate is only valuable if it leads to other good things – participation in not an end in itself •  The benefits of participatory activities depend on how they are run. There are lots of risks: •  Processes can be co-opted by certain groups to push their own agendas •  Who will participate? Do participants only represent the well educated and affluent? •  If practiced poorly, participation activities can lead to disengagement and cynicism
