Participatory Learning and Action 52: General issue

Alastair Bradstock describes a participatory land use process developed by FARM-Africa with land reform groups in South Africa to devise appropriate land-use plans for farming. After decades of alienation from the land, black farmers’ groups are using these processes to gain technical and organisational knowledge, support and skills to help optimise their farming management planning.

Participatory Learning and Action 52 is a general issue. It includes a wide selection of articles, extracts and training tips from participatory practitioners around the world.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board. See:
