Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) – formerly PLA Notes and RRA Notes – is published twice a year. Established in 1987, it enables practitioners of participatory methodologies from around the world to share their field experiences, conceptual reflections, and methodological innovations. The series is informal and seeks to publish frank accounts, address issues of practical and immediate value, encourage innovation, and act as a ‘voice from the field’.
The project focuses on the pastoral community of Lepsy, in Northern Kazakhstan. The community suffers from extremely dry climate and poor pasture management. Increased aridity due to climate change and the disruption to traditional seasonal grazing have negative impacts on livestock productivity. The CBA project aims to reduce the community's vulnerability to climate change and conserve the sand pasture ecosystem. This will be achieved through the implementation of pasture management practices that maximize scarce water resources.
The community is benefitting from the implementation of pasture management practices that maximize scarce water resources.
