This project adapted the PAPD method to the situation of char communities. It evaluated whether participatory action plans can receive the active support of local elites and marginalized people, the form of institution needed to oversee the implementation of action plans, and, whether char development agencies will respond to this institutionalized demand with the provision of services and/or resources.
