This analytical report tackles participatory mapping as a contribution to addressing conflict-related issues and improving community ownership in sustainable natural resource management for enhanced rural poverty reduction. Thus, an overall framework for the implementation of participatory mapping processes within IFAD-supported projects becomes critical to ensuring that the potential of this methodology is fully explored. This report provides a comprehensive overview of such a framework. It outlines the actions needed at each step of the project cycle for the implementation of participatory mapping processes in IFAD programmes and projects. Finally, it builds on an initial review that identifies core principles of good participatory mapping processes, and on knowledge captured from visits to ILC and IFAD projects.
