(English, VCD, 15 mins)
Participatory Net Planning (PNP), developed by WOTR in 1995, is today a well known and widely adopted methodology for the planning and implementation of participatory watershed development projects in India. PNP is a gender inclusive methodology that actively engages stakeholders in the development and management of their land and common resources. This film gives an overview of the philosophy and approach of the PNP methodology as well as provides a step by step outline of how PNP is actually done in the field. A software package that greatly facilitates preparation of a Net Plan is also available at WOTR.
