ABSTRACT: The main contributors to inequities in health relates to widespread poverty. Health cannot be achieved without addressing the social determinants of health, and the answer does not lie in the health sector alone. One of the potential pathways to address vulnerabilities linked to poverty, social exclusion, and empowerment of women is aligning health programmes with empowerment interventions linked to access to capital through microfinance and self-help groups. This paper presents a framework to analyse combined health and financial interventions through microfinance programmes in reducing barriers to access health care. If properly designed and ethically managed such integrated programmes can provide more health for the money spent on health care.Community Development Journal 10/2014; 49(4):618-630.

ABSTRACT: This article presents a case study of a regeneration programme which explored ways in which residents involved in the programme exerted influence over local decision-making for public services. The participation literature has extensively documented constraints on resident empowerment; this article explores the opportunities for resident influence within this context of limitations. The study employed a form of network analysis to conceptualize the regeneration partnership as a network and to explore the ways in which individuals adopted roles as ‘network brokers’ which facilitated resident influence. Institutional arrangements of the regeneration partnership were designed to promote participation through formal meetings but resident influence also occurred through network brokers in both formal and informal peripheral network spaces, thereby representing an opportunity for resident influence over and above formal participation arrangements. If this type of central–peripheral network structure and brokering is a normal pattern for participation, then the implication here is that although institutional arrangements and numbers of residents participating are important, we should also pay attention to how individuals are networked, because this seems to have implications for resident influence. This was something of an ideal case, given the comparatively benign environment for participation in the case study area, and influence for the majority of residents remained limited overall, but it points to the importance of key individuals in local participatory initiatives, their location in networks and their ‘brokering’ work in empowering local communities, which may have applicability in other contexts.Community Development Journal 06/2014; 49(3):458-472.

ABSTRACT: Social marketing is the application of marketing theory to social issues. A significant drawback, though, is that practitioners are encouraged to assume high levels of agency among their target audiences, often while developing programmes aimed at very disadvantaged groups. However, some social marketers work openly and collaboratively at neighbourhood level to co-create change with the people who would usually be cast in the much more passive role of an audience. This article describes a project that adopted these principles, working with people in two deprived neighbourhoods to co-create strategies to reduce risky drinking. Locals used alcohol to cope with feelings of being trapped, emotionally and socially isolated with limited access to employment and facilities. A mobile services hub with a street cafe was piloted for 4 days. This project is an example of the potential for overlap between social marketing and community development and suggests that practitioners could learn from each other's expertise. The article concludes with a review of social marketing's role in situations where structural barriers to behaviour change are high, finishing with a call for social marketers and community developers to open themselves to collaboration.Community Development Journal 05/2014; bsu028.

ABSTRACT: Relationships between the extractive industries, society and development are often symbolized by unfulfilled expectations and even conflict. Poor, rural, politically marginalized and indigenous communities are often significantly impacted by the extraction of fuel and non-fuel minerals. This paper explores the challenge of resource-led development in Zambia's ‘New Copperbelt’ (i.e. the Northwestern Province). It explains how Kansanshi, a mid-tier mining company, has struggled with various community development aspects, including resettlement and compensation, hiring and employment, the maintaining of local government interactions and formulating a coherent corporate social responsibility (CSR) and infrastructure project strategy. Findings suggest that community capacity to hold Kansanshi and local government to account is relatively weak. Recommendations include aligning CSR strategies with district, regional and national development objectives, as well as building linkages between local civil society organizations and national/international non-governmental organizations. This would enable communities around the mine to share experiences, lessons learnt and effective company and local government engagement strategies.Community Development Journal 07/2013; 48(3):360-376.
