Participatory resource planning 

Participatory resource planning is a process that enables various stakeholders to decide what resources are needed to implement a plan, and where they will come from. Stage 3, Step 4, of this guide explains how to generate a list of the activities that are needed to achieve an objective. The example used here addresses the objective: Clear the community’s drainage canals to minimise flooding


Estimate the resources needed, in terms of people (manual labour), money, materials, technical assistance, services, and anything else. Creating a resources needed table helps community members and other stakeholders to visualize the resources they require. The resources obtained table enables the community to document offers of resources and visualize the involvement of key stakeholders.
