What does it mean to take a community-based approach to international development?
Please join us for the third and final installment of the Posner Center’s Biennial of the Americas Panel Series. Each of the three panels address on one of the Biennial’s themes from an international development perspective, with this installment focused on Community NOW!
How do we truly involve communities in development? What does true “community-based development” look like? Why is it so important? What are the challenges? Is the approach to “community development” the same across the Americas?
