Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR)


Research that is conducted as an equal partnership between traditionally trained experts and members of a community. In CBPR projects, the community participates fully in all aspects of the research process. CBPR projects start with the community.

Example of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR):

When creating a community garden in a neighborhood, a community based participatory research is conducted beforehand. A survey is created by the City people as well as the community representatives as part of CBPR program.
