Facilitating Participatory Rural Appraisal - 27th January 2010

"Facilitation is not easy!" "I have gained more insight about the why of participatory rural appraisal methods", "I discovered more about my own facilitation style". Two ICCO - Togetthere Junior Capacity Development advisors participated on the 27th January 2010 in the training Facilitation of PRA. They will be active as facilitators in Honduras and Indonesia.

The training was focused on practising, reflection and getting feedback. As case study was choosen a video about Farmer to Farmer learning in Ethiopia. A Red Cross project on how to deal with climate change in Ethiopia.




Exercises were done on social mapping and the historical time calender. These are methods which are regularly used for community and organisational development processes. More about PRA literature, Training manual PRA - Simon Adebo & PRA, Bishnu B. Bhandari.
