Sharing community experience of development

Sharing project knowledge among communities
Offering adequate sharing of community skills
Direct interchange and interaction among projects and participants in development activities is an accelerating factor in rural development. Information is both a resource and a motivating factor. Community projects have found that regular interchange and communication is a critical key to the development effort. This can be informal communication, sharing what is happening in the project or regular news briefs that keep the community updated on the total effort. Regular meetings have been critical to rehearse common objectives and report on activities. Mass communication programmes through radio, TV and newspapers keep an open system of interchange between the project and the outside world.
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.
