In its simplest terms, a participatory approach is one in which everyone who has a stake in the intervention has a voice, either in person or by representation.

The purpose of this document is to provide a systematic way of participatory technology development - an approach, in which farmers are the core in the development of technologies in farming practices and natural resource management, which creates a close collaboration between researchers and extensionists in the extension system.
illustrates how a participatory approach to technology development can be applied effectively, drawing on the experiences of a wide range of successful projects Livestock research and development work has tended to lag behind crop production work in the development and application of methods for participatory technology by: Practicing Participatory Technology Development can be challenging.

It does not pay much attention therefore to theoretical issues, and only covers very basic aspects of statistical analysis of experimental data. Participatory Technology Development (PTD), an approach to development that emerged during the s and ’90s, involving collaboration between experts and citizens of less-developed countries to analyze problems and find solutions that are appropriate for specific rural communities.

Participatory technology development (PTD) is an approach to learning and innovation that is used in international development as part of projects and programmes relating to sustainable agriculture.
The approach involves collaboration between researchers and farmers in the analysis of agricultural problems and testing of alternative farming practices. It sets out practices and debates in gender-sensitive participatory research and technology development, concentrating on the empirical issues of implementation, impact assessment, and institutionalisation of approaches for the wider development and research by: 3.
The participatory approach. Development cooperation is done at its best when the partners have a common interest at stake.
When they all are going to benefit from the development process they analyze the problems together, and decide together what needs to be changed, and what needs to be maintained.
Participatory technology development (PTD) has been advocated as a way of increasing the likelihood that technologies developed will be suitable for resource-poor households (RPHs). However, PTD is a resource-intensive approach, and it has also been argued that it is an expensive one, on the grounds that the high degree of heterogeneity.
