Strategic Communication for Community-Driven Development: A practical guide for project managers and communication practitioners. (DevCom) 2005.

Community-Driven Development (CDD) is an approach that provides communities and local governments control over decisions and resources that affect their development.

It engages and empowers people through a participatory process of local development. The strategic use of communication tools and techniques to assess
obstacles to the process and use information effectively is crucial since the CDD approach relies primarily on people and strives for their empowerment.
This practical guide was developed through wide consultation with a group of Task Team Leaders and communication specialists who have incorporated communication interventions in their projects. They also have a wealth of knowledge, experience, and ideas on how to best use communication tools and effectively integrate a comprehensive communication program in CDD operations.
