Community Driven Development

The method used in this case is Community Driven Development (CDD).

Community Driven Development aims to provide the community groups a direct control of the development process, resources, and decision-making authority.


Benefits of the model:

By doing so, there is greater responsiveness to local demands, decisions are more inclusive, and can be more cost-effective compared to centrally led programs.
