Assessment of Community Driven Development on Youth Empowerment
A Study Submitted to the Department of Adult and Community Education
The study aimed at assessing the role of Community Driven Development (CDD) on the empowerment of Youth.
The study sought to find out the different CDD sub-projects; the approaches and methods in implementing CDD; the knowledge and skills utilization; Impact of CDD on youth’s attitudes and behaviors change towards development and how it addressed youth challenges; and challenges faced during the CDD implementation for Youth empowerment.
Community Driven Development (CDD) program has been one of the most popular project used during the post Lord Resistant Army (LRA) conflict scenarios in the empowerment of the war affected population especially Youth in the Northern Uganda.
Globally, to alleviate the earlier problems of over reliance on central governments as the main service provider, CDD programs were launched by the World Bank to improve the accountability and services in key areas.
The CDD boasts many islands of success, but these have not scaled up to cover the global countries with their villages.
However, NGOs quickly learned that well designed and implemented CDD programmes had ripple effects of promoting equity and inclusiveness, efficiency and good governance in Uganda.
