This year, CRRCD completed its 10th years after registration. Since its inception staff of CRRCD have been trained by International training institutions (INGO) for 5 years & then from 2004 it has been started its actual work on grass root level to address the problems of urban and rural communities that affect them. Since its registration on 9th February 1999, CRRCD ‘s staff especially Chief Functionary and program officer had undergone various international training programs on issues of urban and rural development especially in sustainable mobility, extension in rural development, project management, low cost housing, NRM in Germany, The Netherlands, south Afrika, Mali, Niger, France, Thailand, Israel, Bangladesh in terms of both the breadth and depth of rural development work in various sector. From a small beginning with working on education issues, CRRCD has today made significant inroads in the fields of strengthening sustainable livelihoods, water resource development, enhancing human capabilities and building institutions of self-governance at the community level. This work has enabled CRRCD to gain a deeper and more nuanced understanding of both the complex nature of the systems it is engaging with and what it takes to engender change within them. The present Comprehensive Plan (CP) of CRRCD include Sustainable Agriculture, NRM, Women Empowerment, Child Development & Health cutting activities, we put together a team to start working on the outline of this phase. With the preparation of its Plan (2009-10), this year has provided an ideal time for CRRCD to re-examine, reflect and think ahead. In line with the organization’s participatory values, the process followed for the preparation of is deeply participatory –involving both communities and staff from all levels of the organization, both old and new. Furthermore, the scope has been defined comprehensively, covering not only the organization’s strategies for achieving its vision, but also the organizational structure and, perhaps even more importantly, the organizational culture that will make this work possible. In order to develop the organization’s strategies, consultations are being carried out at all levels with the community, through the zone, block and programmes to the executive committee. All these conversations have focused on exploring what has been achieved so far, distilling the lessons learned from this experience, understanding the changing context and identifying the challenges. Based on this, visions from the community were integrated and combined with visions and strategies evolved at the block level and consolidated into the programmes. To support strategic decision-making process a qualitative & quantitative data will be collected by the concerned programmes. Multiple opportunities are being provided for the results of this strategy-making process to be questioned and refined by staff and communities from across the organization’s work area. For years, we have found it to be a core factor in our ability to remain transparent, just and respectful of diversity.
