The brief describes development planning consultations, locally known as musrenbang, conducted in stages through different levels of governance: village, sub-district and district. The brief then documents lessons from experience catalyzing collective action among local community goups (in particular women's groups) to engage in this development process and to help articulate the women's aspirations in such a way that they could be heard by district decision makers. While some progress was made, such as women's improved presence in different forums and their capacity to speak and propose distinct proposals for development, some challenges such as elite capture remain.
