Community Development is a process of effort of building communities on a local levelwith emphasis on building the economy community development is the socialobligation of the Corporate Sector.It is the contributin made by the corporate sector in the uplifment of the Nation. Under community development various measures are undertaken to privide the basicnecessities required for live hood.Collaborative, collective action taken by local people to enhance the long term social,economic, and environmental conditions of their community. The primary goal of community development is to create a better overall quality of life for everyone in thecommunity.Coca-Cola believes that focusing on community strenghs has the greatest potential toadvance sustainable development at the community level. Through nearly a decade of fieldwork in five African countries, IISD has developed a sustainable livelihoods modelthat builds on local strengths by identifying and reinforcing the adaptive strategies thatlocal people often develop to maintain their livelihoods approach, the institute is nowtesting a new community development method called appreciative inquiry.All the greatest and most important problems of life are fundamentally insoluble…They can never be solved, but only outgrown. This outgrowing proves on further investigation to require a new level of consciousness. Some higher or wider interestappeared on the horizon and this broading of outlook the insoluble problem lost itsurgency. It was not solved logically in its own terms but faded when confronted with anew and stronger life urge.
The community development project is of recent origin and springs from the need toevoke community participation in the identification of local problems and theinvolvement of solutions for the same.
The appreciated world came in to being with the development of man’s capability for self – reflection, a faculty encompassing much more than just thinking. It holds theworld – as we view it not just through the understanding that our mind compasses of it but through all forms of experience. It embraces our appreciation of what this world cando to and for us, and what we can do to and for it… Thus, the appreciated world becomes the motor for change induced by human action.

Development organizations need better methods for engaginglocal people, so that they can help communities create a shared vision of an equitableand sustainable future and then move toward it through locally initiated and managed project activities.Such methods need to be complemented through capacity.Primary goal of community development is to create a better overall quality of life for everyone in the country.
