The Program of Community Development (Program Comdev) is one of three Programs in CRESTPENT IPB. This program was established simultaneously with the establishment of CRESTPENT in 2005.
There are three theoretical traditions that covers all of Program Comdev activities, either researches, projects, or community services. Those three theoretical traditions are community development, participatory approach, and the Commons (common-pool resources and common property). They jointly provide us with frameworks, theories, and models as a basis for development of approaches, methods, and techniques to be used in solving problems and delivering our mandates and services.
