This Handbook is an introductory guide to community development and capacity building.

For those who already have knowledge and/or experience of community development, the Handbook offers a resource for reviewing the basics of the process and exploring or initiating community development. The guide includes definitions of basic terms, explanations of community development as a process and the most common challenges (and solutions) attached to community development.
