THE CONCEPT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ITS PRESENT AND FUTURE APPLICATIONS IN PAKISTAN.
AHMED, FIROZA
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS ARE ANALYZED IN THIS STUDY TO CLARIFY THEIR DEMOCRATIC PHILOSOPHICAL ORIENTATION, TO IDENTIFY PROGRAMS IN INDIA, EGYPT, IRAN, AFGHANISTAN, THE PHILIPPINES, AND BURMA HAVING POTENTIAL SIGNIFICANCE FOR PAKISTAN, AND TO SUGGEST SOCIAL SERVICE AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES THAT SHOULD BE EXPANDED OR INAUGURATED IN PAKISTAN. THE PRESENT PROGRAMS IN PAKISTAN CAN BE STRENGTHENED THROUGH CLARIFICATION OF THEIR THEORETICAL BASES TO ELIMINATE PATCH-WORK ACTIVITIES. THE RESOURCES AND EFFORTS OF THE ADMINISTRATORS, THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS, AND THE COMMUNITY LEADERS SHOULD BE COORDINATED THROUGH A MINISTRY OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. THE UNION COUNCILS SHOULD BE EMPOWERED TO PLAN AND APPROVE COMMUNITY PROJECTS, BUT NOT TO REGULATE THEIR DAY-TO-DAY EXECUTION. ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO HAVE SPECIALIZED TECHNICAL TRAINING AND FIELD EXPERIENCE IN SOCIAL WELFARE AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. IMPROVEMENTS ARE NEEDED IN RECORD KEEPING AND DISSEMINATING DATA CONCERNING COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS. THERE MUST BE WIDER USE OF PILOT AND DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS.
