Fighting Rural Poverty in India, Nepal and Buthan

In initiating and reinforcing a systematic approach to learning from development experiences, CTA invited a number of organisations working in remote rural parts of Nepal, Bhutan, Indonesia and India. The idea was to introduce Experience Capitalisation as a particularly effective methodology for this purpose. Participating organisations were expected to use this knowledge to document and analyse their own work over a period of 3-4 months with support from colleagues, partners and the communities they were supporting. This resulted in a set of written documents aimed at sharing findings with wider audiences. The finest twelve of these find a place in this collection.
