Tariq Omar Ali, Mehnaz Rabbani and Munshi Sulaiman share their experiences of refining a participatory method to investigate poverty dynamics of the extreme poor in Bangladesh following programme interventions. Although some changes were apparent, the families did not move up or down in the wealth ranks defined by the community. So the authors refined the method, resulting in valuable insights about the perceptions of change and mobility of the extreme poor.

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: www.planotes.org
