Information Gathering & Community Support Structure
The natural or organic flow of projects starting to take place in communities, will pave the way for greater participation and people taking responsibility for their own community development programs. These projects bring immediate small scale relief and are the building blocks for establishing a foundation for the whole community to benefit from.
To establish a Community Development program beneficial to everyone, certain types of information needs to be gathered for the long-term planning of a sustainable model that considers all relevant factors based on scientific study. In addition a support structure run by trained community members needs to be established to coordinate, train, implement, evaluate and monitor results. This information will facilitate the current and future decision-making process and identify the needs and wants of the community as a whole, that of the individual, available resources and resources that need to be acquired for sustainability.
