A Participatory Guide to Developing Partnerships, Area Resource Assessment and Planning Together

This manual is part of a series of good practice guides describing the components of the participatory and area-based approach to rural agroenterprise development.

The manual lays the groundwork for rural agroenterprise projects by leading service providers through an asset-based analysis of the area where a project takes place, a social profile analysis of the client group(s) and the establishment of an agroenterprise working group. The output of the work from this guide is an action plan.
