Description

Participatory Impact Pathways Analysis (PIPA) is an umbrella term to describe both the participatory construction of impact pathways and their subsequent use. This brief focuses on the participatory monitoring and evaluation of progress along impact pathways. The use of impact pathways for ex-ante impact assessment is described in Douthwaite et al. (2007a). Used ex-post, PIPA involves employing the PIPA workshop format to reconstruct impact pathways.
