Village based methods

  • Household survey with questionnaire, including demography, income, taboos, perceptions and aspirations. Download datasheet

  • Scoring exercises in focus group meetings. We called this the 'Pebble Distribution Method' (PDM); the groups divided 100 counters over land and forest types, use classes, species, distance classes and time periods respectively, to indicate their 'importance' to them. Download datasheets
