Studies by Praxis

Praxis has hosted Ground-Level Panels over the past few years to ensure the voices of marginalised groups does not get left out in the race for development.

 

Here’s how we did it.

 

The first attempt was a culmination of participatory processes with marginalised groups like sexual minorities and sex workers, urban poor, children and sewerage workers in the Ground-Level Panel of July 2013. The panel submitted 15 goals to the United Nations High-Level Panel on the post-2015 global development framework.

The second brought together agricultural communities to talk about the impact of climate change on their lives, livelihoods and agriculture. The panel made recommendations on Climate Change and Agriculture.

In September 2015, once the Sustainable Development Goals were announced, people from diverse marginalised groups such as urban poor, people with disability, children, sex workers, sexual minorities, Dalits, tribals and people from religious minorities reviewed the Goals from the lens of their lived experience.

The panels were not a stand-alone process. They were part of participatory research, participatory video processes, digital story making and other such means of engaging with people from the margins.
