Project Implementation

Participatory implementation and eventually the participatory management is not a spontaneous process; it is a conscious and informed activity. This will be achieved through involving community at every step of project activity. The process of continuous, active stakeholder involvement in the activities shall result in various benefits.

  1. More community members shall be committed to carrying on the activity after the outside support has stopped.
  2. This will help in develop skills and confidence.
  3. A greater sense of ownership and agreement of the processes to achieve an objective
  4. Shall help in evolving a more transparent and accountable system 
Based on the PRA, activities shall be identified. Each activity shall have a team that shall participate in the implementation work.

Reporting, Appraisal and Participatory evaluation
Based on the indicators identified by the community for the logframe matrix, a suitable activity reporting format shall be developed. This format shall become the basis of the yearly appraisal and participatory evaluation.

The basic purpose of reviewing and reporting shall be to improve implementation effectiveness by ensuring accountability for the funds allocated and by promoting the learning from the lessons by making necessary adjustment. A participatory Monitoring and evaluation (PME) suitable for each activity and for the project shall be designed.

In the upcoming posts we’ll discuss how these techniques were implemented, the response of the people and the final outcome of the PRA with its benefits contributing to the other development work going on in the area.
