Community Based Sustainable Development

Community Based Sustainable Development: A Proposal for Going to Scale with Self-Reliant Social Development, Daniel C. Taylor & Carl E. Taylor (New York: UNICEF, 1995)

“This monograph brings together many years of experience in UNICEF and other agencies in promoting components of Sustainable Human Development. Area Based Programmes have tended to be successful in local areas but there have been problems in their not readily ‘going to scale.’ There are, however, examples of successful extension. In this volume, Drs. Daniel Taylor and Carl Taylor have made a worthy effort in drawing important lessons from such examples and proposed a set of measures that could guide future efforts. The process places special emphases on: equity, a long-standing UNICEF goal of reaching the unreached; adaptation and innovation under diverse local conditions; and capacity building through collaboration between communities, government officials, and experts.”
James P. Grant
Executive Director, UNICEF (1980-1995)
