The Commune/Ward/Town Socio-Economic Planning Process (SEPP) in Quang Ngai Province merges household and community needs with available Programs, Projects and funding sources. This Participatory Rural Appraisal Manual is used by Commune People’s Committees, District People’s Committees and Facilitators. This Manual outlines the basic Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) tools applied in SEPP and facilitation techniques when conducting PRA Field Exercises with households. SEPP is an eight step process, all of which are discussed in detail within the manual.
This Participatory Rural Appraisal Manual was prepared for conducting Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) Field Exercises conducted under SEPP. Guidance is given on PRA Field Exercises, PRA tools, facilitation skills and the analysis of PRA results. PRA results are presented to households at Village Planning Meetings and form a foundation for the preparation of the Commune Socio-Economic Plan.
