Paper Title
Assessing the Status of Community Participation in Local Development
  Haileleul Gebrehiwet Tesfay

A study was conducted in Kilte-awulaelo woreda, Tigray National Regional State, Ethiopia from February 2015 to March 2016 with the objective of assessing the status or contribution of community participation in local development. Community participation in local development is a prerequisite for national renaissance which invites dialogues among the various actors (stakeholders) concerning setting developmental objectives, and converting local views and knowledge for development and democratization. Community participation-oriented local development is a very recent development agenda in the Ethiopian political economy discourses. This study has employed a descriptive research design; and has used both primary and secondary sources of data which were collected using questionnaire, interview, focus group discussion, personal observation and document analysis. In this way, the realities of community participation in local development have been identified. Research findings show that there is manipulated type community participation on works to sustain local development, hence local development is generally developed by powerful individuals, governments, or outsiders without any discussion with the local communities. Local people have failed to vividly demonstrate their skill and knowledge on tackling poverty and underdevelopment. There was chronic rural poverty and undemocratic local leadership, which in turn limits active local community participation in the local development decisions and democratic practices.
