AREA BASED DEVELOPMENT APPROACHES

Brussels (JRC headquarters) 6 and 7 September 2010

area based recovery development can be defined as
Area Based Recovery & Development can be defined as:

Targeting specific geographical areas in a country, characterized by particular and complex recovery and development problems, through an integrated, inclusive, participatory and flexible approach

slide3

Area of intervention: typically smaller than the country itself (but can be cross-border)

  • 4 categories of problems to be addressed:
    • Conflict-related
    • Disaster-related
    • Poverty-related
    • Exclusion-related
  • ABD only appropriate if problem can be addressed at the level of the area
  • Aim is to make the area fully participate in and benefit from national recovery & development processes
slide4

Integrated: multi-sector, multi-agency, multi-level

  • Inclusive: targets communities rather than specific groups and is non-discriminatory
  • Participatory: involving all stakeholders in planning, decision-making and implementation
  • Bottom-up approach: feeding into policy/ institutional reform through horizontal & vertical linkages
  • Flexible: tailor-made responses evolving with rapid changes in the area/ environment
slide5

Not every project that intervenes at local or grassroots level is area based:

    • nation-wide local governance, decentralized planning or community development programmes
    • local piloting of national programmes
    • sector-specific programmes at local level
  • ABD is area-specific, not sector- or target group-specific
