Participatory Development
What is Participatory Development??
“Participatory development is a process through which stakeholders can
influence and share control over development initiatives, and over the
decisions and resources that affect themselves”(ADB, 1996).
• A process to engage local populations in development projects.
• PD uses local decision making and capacities to steer and define the
nature of an intervention.
• PD aims at achieving a localized capital accumulation process based on
the skills development and local resources generation.
• The essential feature of PD is social mobilization
• PD gives a new self-confidence through which the community can engage
in more ambitious projects involving collective action and management.
Scope and Applications of Participation
• Participation at the micro level of projects such as project planning and
design decisions, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
• Participation at the macro level, for instance, participatory poverty
assessments (PPAs) are designed to influence policy particularly in relation
to development and poverty reduction strategies (Norton et al., 2001).
• Between the micro and the macro level, a number of exercises in
participation at an intermediate or meso level such as participatory budgeting
in local governments and various forms of territory-based rural
development.
Types of Participation
Passive Participation
People are told what is going to happen or has already happened. Top down,
information shared belongs only to external professionals.
Information giving
People answer questions posed by extractive researchers, using surveys etc. People not
able to influence the research.
Consultation
People are consulted and external agents listen to their views. Usually externally
defined problems and solutions. People not really involved in decision making.
Participation by material incentives
Provision of resources, e.g. labor. Little incentive to participate, for example farm
research, some community forestry.
Functional Participation
Groups are formed to meet predetermined objectives. Usually done after
major project decisions are made, therefore initially dependent on
outsiders but may become self dependent and enabling.
Interactive Participation
Joint analysis to joint actions. Possible use of new local institutions or
strengthening existing ones. Enabling and empowering so people have a
stake in maintaining structures or practices.
Self-Mobilization
Already empowered, take decisions independently of external
institutions. May or may not challenge existing inequitable distributions
of wealth and power.

  • 7. Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and Rapid Rural Appraisal (RRA) To enable people so that they can express and analyze the realities of their lives and conditions, to plan themselves what actions to take, and to monitor and evaluate the results. The difference is that PRA emphasizes processes that empower local people, whereas RRA is mainly seen as a means for outsiders to gather information (Chambers and Blackburn, 1996)
  • 8. Key Elements of Participatory Development Process: Growth of consciousness and group identity. The realization of the creative potential of the poor. Empowerment: The process of reconstructing a group identity, raising consciousness, acquiring new skills and upgrading their knowledge base. Participation: Power to break the vicious circle of poverty
  • 9. Variations of Participatory Development Manifestations • Enabling "mutual learning“ to enhance “communication, listening and learning between development workers and those they serve. Implementation 1. Information-sharing tools: News and updates via media 2. Consultation tools: Discussion forums, debates, focus groups etc. 3. Collaborative planning tools: Establishment of local-level planning committees Benefits • High start-up cost but less expensive and more sustainable in the long run • more relevant to local populations than traditional development projects • Addressing local needs Criticisms • Costly and slow • Smaller target population than traditional development • Treating everyone same in the communities.
  • 10. Participatory Approaches to Rural Poverty Alleviation Diagnosis/ project identification, community planning, and formulation • Diagnosing the situations that give rise to problems, setting priorities for their resolution, identifying and formulating project interventions that may help solve some of those problems. Research and extension, innovation, knowledge • The research and development realm consists of co-creative processes to identify needs and opportunities, generate new information and innovations, consolidate them with existing practices, and then translate them into learning objectives and activities for enhanced performance.
  • 11. Con… Natural resource management • Natural resource management development is a main area of application of participatory approaches to help poor in managing the natural resources available to them. Governance and Decentralization • Good governance makes it possible for citizens, individually or in groups, to articulate their interests, exercise their legal rights and negotiate their differences. • Within the broad area of governance, decentralization, which brings decision-making closer to the local level, is potentially important to participation, if it is done well, lead to more responsive government and new opportunities for citizens to participate.
