Abstract or Summary
  • Since the 1980s, NGOs have created a necessary niche for themselves within developing nations addressing poverty “traps” such as: lack of infrastructure, corruption, environmental degradation, conflict, disease, educational paucity, and gender inequality. Due to increasing issues of dependency and failed development projects resulting from a top-down, organizational structure, international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) are adopting what the World Bank calls Community Driven Development (CDD), a bottom-up organizational approach, which places the beneficiary community in control of development projects. Despite its perceived success, the features of CDD have not been operationalized at an institutional, measurable, or replicable level, and as a result, organizations are making their own decisions about what CDD actually entails. The purpose of this paper is to compare the current practices of three small-scale, independent INGOs to the World Bank’s elements of CDD in terms of both its presence and quality within their organizational structures and practices. Understanding what changes organizations make to CDD and why will help evolve our understanding in regards to what aspects of CDD are the strongest and most essential to the continued success of individual development projects and the long-term goals of the communities in which they are implemented.
