Towards a Global Village : International Community Development Initiatives
As the world moves into the 21st century, it enters a period of unprecedented crisis; the human race can no longer take the future for granted. Yet over the last decade, millions of people worldwide have turned to local action to tackle the planet's problems. In thousands of towns, cities and villages, community groups and organizations are teaming up with local authorities to form links with counterparts in the developing world, yet such local initiatives rarely grab the national headlines. In this book, the author defines, tracks and analyzes the emerging global movement of community-based development initiatives (CDIs).
