    NGO Governance: The Case of Nepal

    The debate on the need to adopt a participatory approach in planning and implementing development projects and programmes has increased significantly. This paper explores the role of participation in project planning and implementation in the field of development. This study critically analyses the role of a participatory approach in project planning and implementation in practice through a review of literature. There are contentious viewpoints on the significance of the participatory approach in development practise and claim that it lacks evidence of community empowerment. However, this study espouses that the optimum advantage of adopting a participatory approach in the planning and implementation of projects in practice essentially depends on how participation is conducted.

      Review text

      1. There were 2 aspects that were highlighted in this study. First, the author proposed planning; Second, Implementation. How about the ASSESSMENT of projects/programs planned and implemented? Kindly revisit the literature.

      2. It is suggested and has been the scholarly interest and agreement of respected research journals both print and online to consider ONLY the REFERENCES AND CITATIONS of both related literature and studies for the last 5 (five) years on the date of writing and completion of research so that the research gap between the previous recent studies and the present studies could be identified and given prime focus and consideration.

      3. Once these concerns are addressed, the study deserves publication with scienceopen.com. Congratulations to the author.
