Abstract

Emphasis in many past Participatory Rural Appraisals (PRAs) has been placed on the ‘doing’ dimension, with limited attention to the theoretical or conceptual underpinnings to process design. In this paper, conceptual and process issues relating to design are discussed, using a PRA case experience in the Kyeamba Valley, New South Wales, Australia. This design seeks to address issues embodied in notions of community, local participation and learning experience. How PRA process design can manage interpretation of data, who is involved in that interpretation, and the intentions of analysis are discussed. Questions about the nature and quality of change which could result from the conduct of PRA are raised.
