Case studies are useful for highlighting the human and social context of development interventions, and for telling the story of what has worked and how. They should be short, use accessible language and include photos of the people they are about, where possible.
The process of gathering information for case studies through interviews and focus group discussions is an integral part of the participatory inquiry.
Short briefs outlining examples of good practices can also be an effective tool for sharing your learning and inspiring others. Again, they should be written in clear, non-academic language, provide practical information and be illustrated with real examples.
