Abstract: Community Driven Development (CDD) is broadly defined as giving control of decisions and resources to community groups. The Community Driven Development Programme of the Africa Region of the World Bank, WB, took the initiative for the development of a stocktaking and review toolkit for the analysis of the five dimensions of the national community-driven development programme. These pillars are: (1) empowering communities; (2) empowering local governments; (3) a shift in focus of the centre to a role of facilitating local government activities, setting standard, monitoring outcomes, providing training to lower levels, and providing rewards and penalties to improve local government performance; (4) improving accountability; and (5) building capacity and learning by doing. The methodology described her will assist to make an inventory and an analysis of the state of affairs with respect to the implementation of the CDD approach (in the wider sense) in a certain country. The method is mainly qualitative. It is intended to provide insight in the process to national stakeholders, to stimulate exchange and consensus building, and will contribute to the identification of building blocks for further implementation.
