Participatory Village Development Planning: Towards Self Reliant Communities

Introduction               Indonesia’s village development planning has rarely been based on genuine community participation.  Village Development Plans are often developed by only one or two village leaders, and mainly used by the local (district) government to meet a requirement to obtain national government budget assistance.
