The rhetoric surroun­ding parti­ci­patory deve­lop­ment approa­ches is very posi­tive, based upon the expec­ta­tion that it provides better deve­lop­ment outcomes than clas­sical deve­lop­ment approa­ches. This is both supported and contra­dicted by the parti­ci­patory deve­lop­ment lite­ra­ture, indi­ca­ting the comple­xity of the inter­play of parti­ci­patory approa­ches and deve­lop­ment programs in real world situa­tions.

This study adds to the academic lite­ra­ture focused on parti­ci­patory deve­lop­ment approa­ches using empi­rical data. The rese­arch utilizes an inten­sive quali­ta­ti­vely-based case study metho­do­logy to look at the impacts of the National Soli­da­rity Programme (NSP) on a community in Nort­hern Afgha­nistan, thus presen­ting a new perspec­tive on parti­ci­patory deve­lop­ment: a community level perspec­tive.
