Rapid Rural Appraisal Workshop

Training & Courses | 27 April 2012
Trainer: Ailey Hughes
Deadline: 01 April 2012

This one-day Rapid Rural Appraisal (RRA) workshop will serve as an introduction to RRA methodology through the lens of land and tree tenure. The workshop will introduce participants to RRA theories, research tools, and practical training exercises. RRA is a family of methodologies designed to encourage the participation of local communities in the collection and use of information to improve their livelihoods.

This qualitative research methodology can be used in three ways:

  1. to gather general information about a topic;
  2. to gather in-depth information about a particular subject; and
  3. as a monitoring and evaluation tool.

The workshop will provide participants with the tools to plan research aimed to meet any of these three objectives.
