Participatory design

For training purposes, this manual will focus on how you can design a project as an individual. However, it is important to ensure that your project is relevant for the target groups; effective (able to achieve the objectives); efficient; has a positive impact and reduces any negative impact and has sustainable results and is both financially and ecologically durable (see OECD DAC criteria for evaluating development assistance: http://www.oecd.org/dac/evaluation/daccriteriaforevaluatingdevelopmentassistance.htm )

The best way to ensure this, is to work in a participatory way both during the design phase of the project as during its execution and follow-up. You can find more information participatory approaches such as LFA, PCM and RBM on the this website.
