Community Development
Community Development is the process through which
citizens participate in identifying and implementing
solutions to overcome shared challenges and improve the
quality of life for all.
It is an approach to achieve social change, based on the
understanding that disadvantage and social injustice cannot
be tackled by top-down solutions alone. It challenges
disadvantage and social inequalities.
