|Abstract:||Unsustainable practices have the potential of eroding earth's web of life (air, water and soil) and can also promote poverty. Efforts by government in promoting sustainable development have not yielded the expected results. This paper attributed the failure to the top-bottom approach adopted by governments in planning, executing and monitoring community developmental projects. Mir study suggests a paradigm shift from the top-bottom approach to bottom-up approach, which implies the involvement of local people in all phases of developmental projects. This is the essence of participatory _rural appraisal ( PRA).|
