The unit introduces students to concepts and practices in development and social economic change projects and programmes. Given the centrality of community participation in sustained development, the unit draws on evolving participatory practices used by the not-for-profits sector and other agencies and their governing bodies to engage communities in the whole project cycle, including decision making, implementation and monitoring, and evaluation. The main thrust of this unit is to enable students at the end of the study to design a project.
