This article concerns poverty and poverty-solutions at the community level by enhancing the potential for people in the community to reach their own solutions based on the integral approach and relevant to a Thai context. People Research and Development (PR&D) is the research and development methodology derived from experience of the Thailand Village Foundation in rural development over more than 20 years. The paradigm of development is shifted from the developing of people by outsiders to research and development by the people themselves; through local wisdom, social capital, and network organizations. The essence of PR&D is to activate the learning process and knowledge management within the community, liberating people by exchanging dependency for self-reliance and strengthening people organizations and networks.
