Participatory Action Research (PAR)

As a prelude to the onslaught of big time environmentally disastrous projects, e.g., mining and other “development” projects, a participatory survey and research is conducted by the people in the affected areas. PAR is also implemented in areas within existing “development” projects which affect the environment and lives of the people. The result of PAR leads to activities such as petition signing, mobilization, camp out, etc.
