This report provides an overview of the action planning approach invoked to formulate a water management action plan for the East Kolkata Wetlands, including a comparison of the approach with participatory action plan development (PAPD). The role of process documentation and monitoring in directing and focusing the research assignment and analysing the action planning is outlined. Experiences concerning the preliminary implementation of selected elements of the action plan are then discussed. Finally the formulation, refinement and outcomes of internal and external communication plans for the project are described.
