Community Development in Asia and the Pacific

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

There is a tremendous need for community development practice in the Asia-Pacific region due to its size and prevailing diverse socio-economic, political and cultural needs and issues. Both developed and developing countries have been reemphasizing the importance of community development and have introduced several schemes or programs for overall development. Manohar Pawar familiarizes readers with the region, presents the major social, economic and political issues, looks at values and principles, and critically analyses challenges and shows opportunities for community development practice in the region. This book will allow for anyone interested in community development both at local and global levels ' scholars, non-government organizations (NGOs), government organisations, international aid agencies ' to gain a broad understating of community development trends in the Asia-Pacific region.
