Final Technical Report for project R8223. A learning and communications programme for the PAPD method.
This document represents the final report of project R8223, \"A learning and communications programme for the PAPD method\". The report describes project activities and outputs, most notably the development of a resource pack on Participatory Action Plan development (PAPD).
The main lessons learnt through this research project are (i) the need for a committed organisation to continually promote and develop the method (ii) promoting through an organisation with a track record in the country and the field of expertise, but also one with a wide network of influential contacts and a very clear understanding of stakeholders (iii) the need to thoroughly test all materials with a broad range of stakeholders and to have conducted a thorough stakeholder analysis (depending on the results of a communications needs assessment) (iv) consider a distribution mechanism from the start of the project (v) realise that scaling-up is a long-term process and requires a good understanding of institutional structures and requires that the promoting organisation has some level of influence in institutional change processes.
