Technical / Tactical. The African Highlands Initiative (AHI) is an ecoregional programme that focuses on natural resource management (NRM) research in the densely populated highlands of Eastern Africa. Since its inception, AHI has made substantial efforts to promote participatory research as an effective approach to the development and dissemination of NRM technologies. Outcome monitoring is being used to characterise and assess in detail the changes in behaviour of researchers and farmers as they engage in community-based participatory research activities. The innovation in outcome monitoring shifts the sole assessment of technical outputs of research programmes towards focusing on the changes in the behaviour, relationships and actions of people and organisations required for implementing quality participatory research.
