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 R7562, R8223, R8103 and R8195. Participatory
Action Plan Development (PAPD) is giving the community a say in how
natural resources are managed. Although this is not a new idea, there
are few success stories from the many previous attempts in the
Bangladesh floodplain. It's used early on to assist in setting up new
institutions or before new phases of a project, and helps identify those
features likely to influence their sustainability. PAPD is widely used
in Bangladesh in the land-water interface and floodplain fisheries
context. It has been adapted for the charlands (river islands), and
recently used in areas such as disaster preparedness and agroforestry
systems. Outside Bangladesh, PAPD is used by the WorldFish Center in
Vietnam, and in coastal India (Kerala) and Cambodia.
