Recognition that the more the people are allowed to participate in decisions that affect them, the more likely it is that such project may succeed (b) The more cognizance is given to the fact that there are various socioeconomic and political interests involved, the nearer will the authorities come to solving the problems often confronted with such projects. (c) The more importance is given to the existence of people of various cultural backgrounds the likelier it becomes that problems could be minimized. Also included is the "Dandora Group Project summary of findings" resulting from group discussions with the management/technical community development officers.
