Catherine Bohne and Danka Marekova, experts on sustainable development and community participation will support 25 members of rural communities in identifying and formulating their needs and concerns and formulating their model of sustainable livelihoods. The workshop will result into a draft sustainable development plan, developed by the most active community. By supporting a locally-based sustainable livelihood plan viewable by potential donors/other development actors we want to empower communities to communicate in a coherent format “this is what we want” and encourage other villages to create similar plans.
