Example text

PRA has several underlying fundamental principles. 1. Respect for the community. Failing to respect the local culture and knowledge is likely to not develop the proper rapport needed to work effectively in the community. This respect and rapport can be developed by living and working with a community. The importance of respect is well documented (Tayong and Poubom 1999). This respect can be manifested in the exchange of power in a participatory process. ” At times, this may be a true physical stick, such as a piece of chalk or a marker, which is given to a community member who will facilitate a community meeting or workshop.

Ask questions about the successes and failures and the reasons for each project as the map is developed. Again, triangulating to obtain the views of different groups within the community will give more reliable and robust information. Many development projects are targeted to reach certain segments within a community, and only by working with a cross section of the community will the development worker obtain a realistic picture of the community. “Capacity” also includes the ability to pay for the ongoing operating costs of a development project.

2 Diseases Related to Air Pollution Among the leading 10 disease groups contributing to the global burden of disease are lower respiratory infections, ischemic heart disease, stroke, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. For all of these diseases, urban air pollution and indoor air pollution from use of solid fuels have an appreciable population attributable fraction. Table 2-4 shows these fractions, which demonstrate how disease burden changes with development. In developed countries, indoor air pollution from use of solid fuels is not an important risk factor, and lower respiratory infections do not appear as one of the 10 leading disease groups.
