A resource for anyone interested in community development, this booklet explores the reasons community development projects both in and out of the United States often do not work or do not work as planned. The assumptions, external influences and communication all affect a project's success, and each is discussed in this publication. The author cites several other resources and papers you can refer to, as well as case studies in point.
- Difficulties of development
- Factors that improve a project's potential for success
