Resource Centers for Community Development One pager

Increased citizen participation in local decision-making processes is vital to the development of Armenia's rural communities. Community-based organizations (CBOs), which are founded by community members for the purpose of solving local problems, seek to mobilize citizens in the implementation of effective community development initiatives. Though a large number of CBOs in Armenia have the potential to contribute to the resolution of community problems, these CBOs sometimes lack the capacity to engage citizens in the solution of local problems.
