This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Associated with Projects including R8365, PD117 and R7872. Developed in
Kolkata in West Bengal (India), a new planning approach is available to
help decision makers apply participatory planning in difficult
peri-urban environments. Conventional planning systems are unsuited to
the complexity of peri-urban areas. To overcome this, the 'Peri-Urban
Participatory Action Planning and Implementation' (PU-PAPi) method
combines established participatory planning methods with new features,
and so is better suited to such complex settings. The method has already
been validated in India and Bangladesh, and is expected to be applied at
various locations worldwide. An adapted form of PU-PAPi is already being
used in the EC MANGROVE Project working with poor communities in
Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.
