(Most of Development Interventions are elite top-down,
marginalizing the community from the whole process,
underestimate communitys history and experience hence,
does not contribute to empowering the community)

Perspectiva teorico husi DC
CD is a group of people in community
reaching a decision to initiate a social action
process to change their economic, social,
culture and environmental situation

CD means that a community itself engages in


a process aimed at improving the social
economic and environmental situation of the
community

24
The community itself takes action and participates
together. It is through this action that the community
becomes more vital not just economically but as a
strong functioning community in itself
