Experiences in AFRICA

Support to the CGIAR programme on participatory research and gender analysis (PRGA) The PRGA initiative intended to further develop the participatory research approaches and gender analysis and their institutionalisation. With PICOs vast experience since the lat 1980’s we were resource persons for conceptual and operational support to the programme in various forms: firstly as a donor representatives, then as facilitator and coaches, then as recipients of small grants to develop methods and tools further and to assess impact of FPR. In workshops we presented keynote papers and facilitated learning among participants.
