Rapid & Participatory Policy Analysis (RAPA)

Rapid & Participatory Policy Analysis (RAPA)

Human society progresses through its policies and decisions. Shaping public policy is a complex and multifaceted process that involves the interplay of numerous individuals and interest groups. People have significant knowledge and experience that can add meaningful contribution to the public policy process. The objective of the Rapid & Participatory Policy Analysis (RAPA) Toolkit is not generating intellectual debate, rather to assist activists or interested people to quickly understand about the formation & impact of public policy decisions and identify stages of policy development structure, mechanisms & processes. Policy is a living document, so you can start analysis anytime to transform a good policy into better policy. It is better to make a bad start than to make no start.
