Experience & explorations in
studying & working in development
-- human, community, institutional & environmental

(with information about aid, relief and humanitarian efforts as well)


This section of my web site is to provide resources for colleagues working in humanitarian / aid / development efforts, as well as to anyone studying such. In other words, development: human development, community development, institutional development, environmental development, country development, etc. (in contrast to its meaning in the USA, where the word development is related to fund raising or software or real estate). When I say development here on my web site, I mean development in terms to capacity-building as a part of humanitarian or aid efforts, as well as economic development of areas experiencing high-unemployment, poverty, even conflict. 

(Originally, this part of my web site was a blog about my experience with Open University in pursuit of my MSc in Development Management, and a way to link to OU resources I might need to access when I wasn't at my own computer. But over time, I expanded it to cover all of my work and continuing studies regarding development)
