This project is an action research project. It searches for an alternative approach to development for the CHT region. It intends to see a self-managed, self-reliant and self governed development process takes place at grassroots (village) level for learning and replication. Here, Participatory Action Research (PAR) and Participatory Strategic Planning (PSP) methods are being used as a means to achieve that process.
The alternative approach is named as ‘adivasi development’. Here, the word ‘adivasi’ is used to mean more in terms of values rather of physical or biological adivasi.
