This paper reports on an attempt in Zimbabwe to use methods and techniques commonly associated with rural contexts, Rapid Rural Assessment (RRA) and Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA), to undertake an assessment of the needs and perceptions of private sector enterprises in two urban settings. These participatory methods were well received and also facilitated dialogue among different, and sometimes mutually hostile, stakeholders.
