Research and development can no longer be the exclusive domain of scientists. To find sustainable solutions to development problems, a wider range of actors must be involved. It is crucial, for example, that local stakeholders provide input to the process. Participatory research and development (PRaD) offers such an inclusive model. This three-volume sourcebook provides easy access to field-tested PRaD concepts and practices for practitioners, researchers, and academic. As well, it presents a comprehensive overview of PRaD and will serve as a general reference for trainers, policymakers, donors, and development professionals. The sourcebook captures and examines PRaD experiences from over 30 countries, illustrating applications in sustainable crop and animal production, forest and watershed management, soil and water conservation, and postharvest and utilization.r e s o u r c e u s e r s , lo c a l le a d e r s , a n d N R M a u t h o r it ie s aamp; e x p e r t s s t u d y aquot; t h e s it u a t io n aquot; p ro p o se in itia tiv e s, p re p a re p la ...
