Participatory Planning to Strengthen Decentralisation
The People’s Plan Campaign has been in operation for approximately a decade and half in the state of Kerala. Its innovative approach, sustainability and large scale impact have suggested its suitability as a best practice in governance and public service delivery. A unique set of features and benefits of the PPC were identified through extensive desk-based research. The Governance Knowledge Centre research team focused on studying the erstwhile governance mechanisms in place for planning and implementation of projects, the historical context of Kerala and its mass movements, and the progress of PPC through the years.
