Why we need Community Development?
(Though the present societal conditions has changed a lot, reasons cited at thebeginning of the emergence of Community Development concept, still it seems to berelevant)
In the past change has occurred without plans or guidance. This created innumerableproblems.
Technological Changes;
The rise of organized industry reduced the importance of thetraditional institutions without shouldering the responsibilitiesE.g. 1. Introduction of one lorry (transport) made more than 100 persons jobless2. Nursery school – education function is taken away from the family –but emotionalsecurityis not given
Urbanization:
Destroyed man’s feeling of belongingness
Industrialization and urbanization made it difficult in maintaining common orsharedvalues
.
Tendency to form subgroups
as separate entities in the community produces socialtensione.g. Caste, Religion and Region based organizations, Organized Unions.
Democracy will weaken, if the sense of belongingness and participation is notstrengthened.
 The impact of social, economic and technological changes has not brought much benefitto thecommunities. The rural communities are subject to overwhelming and disruptivepressures andattractions from within and without.
Other causes
population increase – resource depletion
Migration from village to towns.
Bureaucratization by Centralization
Problem are human not technical but we are opting for technical solutions.
Decisions are made for people not by them – large proportions of decision benefit aprevailed sector.
Super Ordination
Centralization
Bureaucratization

Personal Alienation
- Urbanization destroyed Man feeling of belongingness anddifficulties in maintaining common shared values
Loss of individual dignity
– inability to control the events.
To counteract this Community Development has evolved.
