Participatory Learning and Action issue 45: Community-based animal healthcare

This paper investigates the success of various participatory techniques to help inform people about markets, and how such knowledge should also be key in designing development projects.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods.
