La mobilization communautaire et le développement communautaire sont également cruciaux dans la lutte contre les conflits humains qui mettent à mal la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition pour tous et toutes, en particulier les femmes. Il me semble que c'est aussi une dimension tres importante à prendre en compte.

Thank you Professor Chambers for these important points, amazing how your work from the 1980’s is still so relevant today for rural development practice. Could you speak about the role of donor funding in supporting the goals we are discussing here? Basically, how can we restructure financial flows to support that facilitation and empowerment work?

Thank you so very much for these wise and inspirational words, Dr. Chambers. Having been privileged to attained a class with you many moons ago on “participatory rural appraisal, empowerment and community development”, it has shaped my practice ever since and is more relevant than ever. Reference to the Blog on “de-biasing rural development tourism” would be very helpful. Also, for technical experts and specialists who have a lot to say, facilitating and “standing-back” is the most difficult past. Thank you so very much……

If I may, one question to Dr. Chambers and Dr. Gibson. How do they see the role of “Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) including convergence between technologies such as mobile phones, community radios etc. to deepen or divide engagement, empowerment and community development? This based on works on linking “ICTs” with “Voice” such as “Deepening Participation and Improving Aid Effectiveness through ICTs and Media” https://reliefweb.int/sites/reliefweb.int/files/resources/resource_en_199881.pdf as well as people-driven capacity enhancement processes such as “Enhancing Capacities for a country-owned transition towards Climate Smart Agriculture” http://www.fao.org/climate-smart-agriculture-sourcebook/enabling-frameworks/module-c1-capacity-development/c1-overview/en/ Thank you.

Cette presentation et l'expérience des clubs Dimitra montrent bien, aussi, l'importance du role des ONGs locales pour mener à bien des approches communautaires.

This example illustrates well the role of local NGOs for the mobilization of rural communities. This is the case for the Dimitra Clubs. FAO partners with local NGOs to implement this approach and strengthen local NGOs.

Formidable Ali ,une très belle et riche présentation

03:48:46
what is extremely useful is that all clubs join together, in a village assembly, after they have analysed the issues and found endogenous solutions. Then theyr decide on the best way to go ahead. In this process, women have a voice!

Donors and local and national governments are often slow/averse to providing direct funding to villages/communities for their own initiatives. What ideas for overcoming this?
Lois Archimbaud

The FAO Dimitra Clubs' approach is one of the good practices showcased in the FAO, IFAD and WFP publication entitled 'Gender transformation approaches for food security, improved nutrition and sustainable agriculture - A compendium of fifteen good practices' published last year. http://www.fao.org/documents/card/en/c/cb1331en/

The impacts of the Dimitra community listening Clubs ( 2761 Clubs in Niger) on community life with the strengthening of social cohesion, social protection with the establishment of credits, women leadership and the reduction of “farmer-pastoralist” conflicts. The testimonies of the mayors where the Clubs are established which indicate that they should no longer intervene in conflicts when the clubs are well established. Also the use of Dimitra Clubs in the prevention of COVID - 19.
ANDREA Sanchez Enciso

Thank you all speakers for their inspiring presentations! One question that I would be interested in getting some views on: How is the digitalization of the economy expected to shape the dynamics of power dynamics, participation, community engagement and endogenous development approaches? What are ways to influence the outcomes of digitalization for local development?
Christiane Monsieur
04:03:34
Great presentation David. Thank you so much
Eliane Najros

Gunther question:
Eliane Najros
04:03:41
How is the digitalization of the economy expected to shape the dynamics of power dynamics, participation, community engagement and endogenous development approaches? What are ways to influence the outcomes of digitalization for local development?
Lois Archimbaud
04:04:01
I have a bit of a provocative question: listening to the presentations, what is the role of FAO and the international community in community mobilization then?
ANDREA Sanchez Enciso
04:04:39
@Guenter and @Lois Thank you for your questions.
Isaac Lyne
04:04:51
David or Robert: Can you approach patron client relations in a positive light at the same time as trying to facilitate transformatory rural development?
Katrien Holvoet
04:04:57
@david and robert: how does local radio and local language as ways of communicating in order to have full participation is part of your approaches
Osman Abdel-Rahman
04:05:05
Thank you David, for your insights. You have raised very critical issues of community development and the relevance of projects and programmes to community development. Thank you.
Lois Archimbaud
04:05:11
Another question would be: are we leading by example?
Katrien Holvoet
04:05:21
I know communication is a main element of dimitra
Stepman François
04:06:17
@Archer: Great and very relevant to refer to Paolo Freire. How important are Power Reflections in the present agroecology debate (see: Selling the past as innovation in Africa - https://www.iatp.org/blog/202102/selling-past-innovation-africa
David Archer
04:06:18
I think we should always be working in local languages / mother tongues - as there is such a huge power dynamic around language -
Anne
04:06:39
Yes that’s an excellent point.
David Archer
04:06:57
You can only do that with local facilitators from the communities themselves - so that the process is an internal community process not an externally facilitated one
Stepman François
04:07:17
@Archer: local languages are key. See: https://www.accessagriculture.org/
Adriano Campolina
04:07:39
David/Robert: can you reflect on social movements and community engagement> how the rise of social movements have transformed community engagement? what can we learn from them?
huda alsahi
04:08:11
@Adriano Very important question Adriano
Clara Park
04:09:33
Social movements can also be exclusionary and working in silos .. see feminist struggles against patriarchy within social movements
David Archer
04:10:15
Hi Adriano, yes this is key! In any community process there are some issues that can be resolved through local action but often you need action at higher levels to address the structural causes of injustice - and that means connecting up to wider movements. Sometimes these process can also help to strengthen the base of movements e.g. in rural communities
Anne-Sophie Poisot
04:13:09

Sabrina Aguiari
04:21:08
Picking up on the provocative question of Marcela Villareal: FAO represents constituency which are sovereign in their territory, although very influenced by privates. The role of FAO in the direction of ensuring basic human rights from international consensus in rural development, as we see private sector twisting dynamics at all levelstowards commodification of food and control over private livelihoods.Putting rights to food and to livelihoods first, is more and more needed now, in view of self development of community. The role of Dimitra Clubs could also be relevant today in view of this issue: because violation of rural people’s rights is more rampant, in order to provide information to circulate, DImitra Clubs could be an amplifier and possible envision some international ombudsman initiave. In a word, the focus on rule of law for people centered development is more relevant today than before. The technical support to agriculture shall be more and more accompanied by this complementary FAO capacity.
Stepman François
04:21:12
@Marcela: Donors do and can learn. Example: At last farmers are also recognized as genuine researchers in their own right. The EC/INTPA (former DevCo) is presently finalizing a new project "Farmers Organisations Leading Research & Innovation for a change of food systems in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (FO-RI)" (Concord/PAFO)
David Archer
04:21:32
As Freire highlights, illiteracy is just one manifestation of the injustice people have faced and that to resolve this we need to link reading the word to reading the world - hence a much wider process of reflection and action - within which the capacity to communicate (through literacy / language / technology etc) plays an organic part
ANDREA Sanchez Enciso
04:22:01
Dear @Marcela other questions: 1. How is the digitalization of the economy expected to shape the dynamics of power dynamics, participation, community engagement and endogenous development approaches? What are ways to influence the outcomes of digitalization for local development?2. David or Robert: Can you approach patron client relations in a positive light at the same time as trying to facilitate transformation rural development?3. @david and robert: how does local radio and local language as ways of communicating in order to have full participation is part of your approaches.
Anne-Sophie Poisot
04:22:21
Thanks Adriano and Andrea - the work which Dimitra clubs and FFS already doing hand in hand with communities in several countries makes me very enthusiastic, as Ali is sharing just now ! What David said about breaking down the barriers and branding of our tools really resonates. we need to put communities first and ourselves last

Great session, congratulations to the organizers, moderator and all panelists
David Archer
04:23:39
When we started Reflect, everyone talked about setting up Reflect Circles in each community. After a while we discouraged this and said that people should name their own centres / circles / processes as that is key to ownership. So Dimitra Clubs might be a great shorthand term to use in FAO but people in each community should name their own club or process.
Katrien Holvoet

peer learning is very important in Comm for behaviour change that in work on HIV/AIDS and reproductive health has much evolved and we could learn from that sector

Community movements that struggle for access to assets often get bogged down in actions redressing historical injustices. Is there a shortcut to transformation and development.

@Maria Angela, I agree. In this context is often difficult to prioritize gender equality or for them to do self-reflexivity on internal power dynamics

I am attending lots of webinars on Food Systems transition. Lot's of redundancies (also from FAO). This DEMITRA webinar is an exception. Let's go to the basics of empowerment (in this case to master food sovereignty) - literacy

Thanks indeed for the organizers and the resource persons that validate my approach so far in facilitating farmers to cope better to the consequences of climate change. I feel confident that my work is in the right direction, but yes, I still need to do the reflection. I am pleased to see you again Prof. Chambers. Greetings from Indonesia. Yunita T.

Comme disait Amadou Hampâté Bâ: "Un vieillard qui meurt, c’est une bibliothèque qui brûle" .. Let's continue spread the word about DESIRA's relevancy in the present crisis mood
Nora Patricia von Bergen
04:42:42
well yes..but I fully agree with Marcela that knowledge is relative..if everybody would set out assuming that we don't now (relating to the anecdote of Marcela), community, facilitators, initiators.. we would already begin to change the power system
Eliane Najros
04:43:44
We don’t share the same values but we think we do
