Tree and Land Tenure: Rapid Appraisal Tools
The Rapid Rural Appraisal is a family of methodologies designed to encourage the participation of local communities in 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. This manual offers background on the methodology and a toolkit of activities for use by researchers and practitioners. Originally published by United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1994, UCA’s, Mountain Societies Research Centre (MSRC) and the Mountain Partnership Consortium’s Central Asia Hub translated and printed the manual into Russian for use in the region.
