Community Development in Developed Countries.
Franklin, Richard; And Others
Part of a report of seminar proceedings, six papers on community development in developed nations review the conceptual dimensions, issues, and directions of community development in the United States; pilot programs of social research, training, and consultation in rural Saskatchewan; the community development efforts of the University of New England in northern New South Wales, Australia; activities and accomplishments of the New England Rural Development Association (New South Wales); examples of community development and cooperations in the Barossa Valley, South Australia, since World War 1; some principles of extension considered in relation to the Upper Caboolture Agricultural Development Group (Queensland); and an environmental and historical perspective on community development needs in the Rockhampton region of Queensland. A final group report introduces eight other Australian case discussions, together with theoretical formulations on program initiation, goal achievement, education and problem solving, sponsorship and finance, research, leadership training, and the community development process. The document includes tables, figures, and references. (ly)
