World Neighbours' experience of going beyond PRA in Kenya
Muthengi, Kimanzi; Speight, Melanie; Kilalo, Christine
The paper explores some of the different visions and versions of Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) as it has taken shape in the Kenyan context, highlighting differences that are rooted in the different pathways that have brought practitioners to use PRA, and in the enduring development institutions that have shaped practice. It suggests that the sheer variety of meanings and practices associated with PRA pose a serious challenge for efforts to enhance the quality of participatory practice.
