Content

This unit is designed to enable students to design, implement and assess the effectiveness of projects and programmes within the context of community development. The Development Project Cycle provides a critical overview of the project cycle in international and community development work. It enables you to conduct needs assessment and strategic planning, design programmes to respond to strategic needs, prepare grant and other submissions to resource projects, and introduces you to monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment. You will explore a range of case studies to develop both practice skills and your ability to assess the strengths and weaknesses of existing approaches to managing the project cycle.
