Community Organization-Community Development: A Comparative Analysis of Definitions, Principles, Methods, and the Role of Personnel
Since 1949 unprecedented human and technological resources have been flowing from countries of high economic development to lesser developed areas in an attempt to raise productivity and living standards; in this process American personnel have been involved in unique roles as advisors, consultants, trainers and administrators, in the crucial objective of increasing the capacity of the indigenous to mobilize their Independent resources in the solution of their manifold problems. This process of interchange of skills and resources and its culminating point of independent and autonomous capacity building to support these programs is the heart of technical assistance. These programs are varyingly encompassed within the framework of the United Nations and Specialized Agencies, International Cooperation Administration, voluntary agencies, universities, foundations and private firms.
