RRA Notes 9 coverAugust 1990

The first paper in this edition of RRA Notes details a wealth ranking procedure in Swaziland. The paper emphasises the need for training and observes that setting aside adequate time for the process is essential in order that good results be obtained.

The second contribution reports on an RRA held in three upland communities in the North East Palawan province in the Philippines. The third paper looks at the techniques employed in an appraisal of artisanal activities in Zimbabwe.

The fourth item is a discussion article describing examples of mis-hearing during informal interviews. The final article reports on the question of the cultural appropriateness of PRA, based on the author’s experiences in Guinea-Bissau.
