IADC’s Practice Insight: Call for Articles

The IACD are looking for contributions for the Special Issue on Africa. The special issue will be generic, hence; quality practice based papers now invited focusing on all aspects of African development with community development flavour. Articles from the different sub-regions are welcome with varying contexts and practices.
