Answer
Some years ago I read a paper titled: Community-based tourism development model and community participation, From the authors: Andrea Giampiccoli and Melville Saayman. I am sure this publication will be a great contribution to this discussion.
Abstract
Community-based tourism (CBT) is about social justice, empowerment, equity of benefits, redistributive measures, ownership of tourism sector and holistic community development. The aim of this article is to explore the relationship between Tourism Area Life Cycle (TALC) and CBT by proposing a model depicting the various stages of TALC in relation to CBT, community participation and type of tourist. The research indicates, first, that the understandings of community participation and its relationship with CBT need to be more precise to show that CBT is in itself participatory. CBT can also be described as self-participatory: the community itself initiates and drives the development. Secondly, the findings indicate that tourism development at destinations go through stages during which CBT is gradually jeopardised and marginalised by outsiders and local elite. Tourism destination control, as a consequence of CBT, increases potential growth through external stakeholder support which is important. More research is required to investigate, understand and enhance the role of CBT in tourism destinations for the benefits of the local community and disadvantaged (poorest and socio-economically marginalised) – people in particular.

Relevant answer
Answer
Developing countries often suffer from a lack of good teachers and schools. As a result, they frequently do not have very good academic standing and their people are less educated. With this lack of learning and cultivation comes a worse economy as well. The developing world needs to find a way to academically catch up with the developed world. Not only is it lacking in educational resources, but health care is a problem as well. Medical professionals are rarely available, especially in places further from the city. Individual appointments use up human resources fast, leaving others with no help. Even things like farming are getting to be more difficult. With the changing climate, farmers cannot use traditional farming cycles and predictions to determine the best time to plant their crops. Luckily, artificial intelligence is helping developing countries tackle some of their present challenges.

The relationship is symbiotic.
Media theory and research are intimately related and completely interdependent.
Essentially, theory performs the following role in research.
· It serves as a critical guide to research.
· It sets problems for research
· It identifies new subjects for research
· It directs research enquiry.
Research, on the other hand, performs the following roles in theory.
· Research findings suggest new problems for the theory
· It invites new theoretical formulations
It leads to the final retirement of theories themselves

@Witold Bogusz asked a question about "the purpose of research and innovation" in various countries as the starting point is not the same worldwide.
Problems to be resolved in local context (culture, climate, human and natural resources) seem to be different. Maybe except for the academic world, where there is always a temptation to follow most "hot, trendy and sexy" topics, hoping for recognition in "mainstream scientific world". I strongly support the academic freedom of research, as long as it is financed from "non-public" founds. When it comes to publicly financed institutions, I'd prefer to see some positive outcomes for the "sponsor" who can be a poor and still developing community. I truly long for some kind of RIF "Real Impact Factor" that would measure the outcomes of the research for the founding community.
Have you any experience with similar metrics?

Linda Harms Smith thanks for the reply. You are right that community libraries have a great role in developing their communities. But the challenge presently are many. There is a general lack of understanding of what Libraries are both within the profession and policy makers.

Answer
Dear Nabil
I think first there is a need for building perspective of all stakeholders in developing countries on substantive equality when discussing issues of disability. That is people with disability have to be treated differently to achieve equality in development outcomes. Those who face multiple disabilities need special attention, as well as those with other marginal identities on the basis of race, caste, class, ethnicity, religion, location, sexual orientation etc
Second, countries could share how they identify people with disability, and build capacities of enumerators to do so, and challenges they are facing. Visibilising their existence is a must.
Third, sharing how services in developing countries are made accessible to people with disabilities, and being used equitably would be good
Fourth sharing legislation, policies and budgeting practices that are disability specific or inclusive would be good.
Finally sharing SDG monitoring from abilities lens would be good. After all, no one should be left behind

Development communication seeks to uplift, change, and solve development problems. Corporate Social Responsibility also has the same end result which is development of individuals, communities, or society as a whole but largely depends on private sector contribution (companies, NGOs, non-profit organizations, and individuals who commit to utilize their internal resources for development work.)
CSR is a growing field but is hounded with many concerns like the validation of authentic reasons why companies and individuals participate. Do you think private persons and companies have the moral and ethical responsibility to give back to their public and intended beneficiaries?

I saw many questions without answer. Why Researchers' community is not collaborative as much as developer community. for example if a developer ask question in StackOverflow , he would get about 10 answers and responses within 15 minutes. Is that because of the website environment or the difference between developer and researchers' personally?  
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Andrea Gaggioli 
I mainly agree with what you say.  But when you say "sometimes researchers' questions are more open-ended and abstract" [and] "may tend to include more 'unstructured' knowledge", this should NOT excuse not being able to find some common ground in addressing the particular questions.  There is no good excuse for lack of common ground. The reason lack of common ground exists is:  lack of direct empiricism (incl. observations and inter-rater reliabilities AND a clear history of such informing our understanding of the nature of internal representation via the various memory capacities).  One major type of thinking antithetical to good, empirical  science is the notion of embedded/embodied/enacted WITHOUT also significant "embedding" IN THE ENVIRONMENT (present) in EACH significant instance of learning (including that which occurs for major qualitative developments AND ALL SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENTS). 
It is beyond belief to me that a trend to theorize regarding embedded/embodied etc. is not accompanied by always MORE and MORE clear "embedding" with and in the environment -- this is simply a presumptuous break with empiricism (AND it's due to faulty, untested pseudo-assumptions) and is not in any way justified.  Until and unless the "embedded" theorists (researchers?) always show some corresponding increase in the embedded-ness of significant behaviors within the environment, all we have is a grand fiction of some important behavioral developments occurring ONLY IN/ JUST WITH the mind itself, i.e. ONLY internal processes involved.  This is related to the preposterous belief (and pseudo-assumption) that higher levels of conceptualization (aka abstraction) have no external proximate causes (referents) in the environment essential for their inception.  This preposterous, unempirical, and unjustified stance certainly has a long history in Western thought and mental philosophical cogitations, but should be seen by any empiricists as very likely a fiction; our outlook on the organism and its environment should SHOW our stance against such unjustified and empirically preposterous positions.  Until this is true, common ground, any real common ground for discussions will be lacking (it will be like the debate of those of 2 religious denominations !!)
If Western scientists continue to want to hold to certain basic assumptions (actually, basic beliefs, and not true assumptions), then they should at least have to PROVE THEM!  Without that the foundations of the fields of psychology are NOT even established; in a real sense, nothing good has yet even begun. 
Let me a remind you of ALTERNATIVE views and assumptions (contrary to those positions held today, but biologically and organismically more likely) -- and this is in addition to finding empirical referents for all significant behavior change AND HAVING A HISTORY OF TRACKING THOSE over ontogeny (a pattern of conceptualization supported by the ethological approach in "A Human Ethogram ...", using only, but all, the terms of classical ethology):
It can clearly be argued that all of the following are more in line with biology (organismic, if you like):
(1) one should develop a theory expressly consistent with biological principles (e.g. homeostasis) -- it should clearly and, in effect, constantly show in the theory;
(2) The most significant learnings and innate factors occur, in effect, completely simultaneously (and the innate factors at times may well be more important, regardless of the stage of development one is looking at);
(3) Major innate guidance emerges with each significant qualitative advance in conceptual abilities (last one around adolescence, at the earliest);
(4) The more "advanced" the organism, the more learning occurs, BUT ALSO the more [significant] innate guidance (factors) are involved;
(5) Inductive work should be emphasized and hypothetico-deductive systems should be formulated ONLY when you must (and then with no loss or bias of/in observation)
(6) Everything that develops, including our most prized abstract conceptual abilities, are very likely and potentially observable, concrete (in their inception) -- though these may often be seen "just as" perceptual (perceptual/attentional) SHIFTS and adaptive biases.  (This is an instance of the CORE empirical assumption and the way learnings/developments would happen with the organism adapting in its environment in any and every noteworthy way.  NO abstract conceptual abilities emerge from just internal processes -- from just "thinking" in the brain/mind.)  Never accept social-learning fictions as any plausible substitutes for individual advances -- especially when these really have just the same status as stories or myths
By the way:  None of the above indicates there is less learning (more if anything -- if one can really use their imagination here); but, also see:  there is no "pure" learning.
Establish these OR establish your "contraries", but DO ESTABLISH a foundation for the field.  If you lack the ability to establish your core beliefs and views (and "assumptions"), abandon them for views and assumptions that are quite possible (if not more likely) and which can be empirically shown -- or at least give it a try..

The use of Development Communication in developing countries can be a catalyst of community development, especially in natural resources extraction regions (mine impacted regions). In a nation like PNG, that has diversified cultures and languages together with its rough topographical terrains, the use of Development Communication for community participation and empowerment is a real challenge.
Relevant answer
Answer
Development Communication can effectively be utilized in a mining country such as PNG. One of the first things to consider here is that members of the local communities who comprise some of the hard labor and want nominal money at the end of the day are basically unaware of what stakeholders are really after. Full disclosure of information through effective communication which includes listening to comments, criticisms and suggestions of local folks should not be undermined. This is where DevCom attains its genuine goal rather than a one-sided, stakeholder-focused concept of development where encroachment and exploitation can be inimical to local communities.
Apart from economic benefits that must accrue to both parties, risk management can also be of utmost importance as workers are vulnerable to high-risk operations. NGOs from foreign nations and ther local counterparts including government and private sectors should have a design plan that will reduce accidents and proper compensation rewarded to those victimized. There is also environmental awareness that needs to be transmitted from stakeholders to local communities and vice versa in the principle of environmental preservation instead of degredation. Serious communication channels should be disseminated to all constituents. Having said, the use of digital media will be critical in fast delivery of information. Mobile technologies such as cell phones should be made availabe to all parties and such pertinent information to be delivered in mobile gadgets, as the case may be. The use of social media networks such as facebook and twitter are venues for assessment of productivity and criticisms which can draw some cynicism from the management side. Nevetheless, openness of information assures that everyone is well-informed of every situation.
Lastly, it is important to integrate community folk sensibilities, values and priorities with those of company's strategic goals and somewhere in-between them, both parties must agree. The fulfillment of DevCom becomes a reality when neither of the party is endangered, when both parties equitable enjoy a well-balanced production output.

More indigenous languages are going extinct. The level of literacy in the language of globalization-English remains low. Can development communication experts and development workers harmonize language in community development activities using indigenous language materials?
Relevant answer
Answer
Indigenous languages or dialects (for this matter) should be the major forms of communicating development messages to specific audiences considering the English literacy of your targets for example.  Development practitioners and communicators usually include in the project framework or development goals a way of being "culture-sensitive".  Thus, one way is to adapt to the common people's way of talking or speaking (including dialect), their way of expressing themselves as that would be  part of their norms and culture.  Thus, thorough development would be highly affected by how stakeholders or audiences will understand you and your level of commitment will also be gauged by how well are you with their language.  I affirm to the question, a very good one as one just work on indigenous languages but never put into a dialogue before

Government of nations make land laws to ensure easy access for sustainable development of communities. Observably, these laws have generated more conflicting land ownership and administration issues than addressing them especially in the developing countries. 
In the light of this, What could be the best approach to measure and empirically establish the relationship between land administration and sustainable development of communities?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Christopher,
the range of possible answers is probably as large as the range of disciplines. As a qualitative social science researcher, I read your question as a question about method and methodology. It seems to me that first of all, you would want to qualitatively describe the relationship between land administration and sustainable development of communities. But what does this mean? Alongside other answers I concur that this includes opening up what land is and how land is used. To turn your question into an instrument, I read it as pointing to at least four components
  1. land,
  2. administration,
  3. sustainable development and
  4. communities.
Now, how can you study the relationships between them? I would propose you choose a method like ethnography that allows you to actually describe and critically question the actual (rather than the ideal) empirical relationships in the work and life practices of administrators and people in a particular community affected/targeted by a policy. So, your study could set out from a workplace study of those administrators who try to do "good": what is it they actually do? What is the reality of "administration" when you study it as a form of practice involving real people and their instruments (computers, documents, team meetings, etc)? To give you a taste of what that might involve, look e.g. at Büscher's Transforming the Frontier: Peace Parks and the Politics of Neoliberal Conservation in Southern Africa. Or read up on workplace studies in public administration, e.g. Rhodes' Everyday Life in a Ministry: Public Administration as Anthropology. I recently edited a special issue in Geoforum that engages with workplace studies of agents who attempt to work towards sustainable development (with a focus on environmental managers); the SI might also offer you some interesting ideas of how to approach your study.
I hope this is a helpful response, even if it just helps to clarify your methodological commitments.
best,
Ingmar

for example polio and RCH has been given enough emphasis for social mobilization and development communication. Tropical diseases and especially leprosy have rarely been addressed with such vitality. can mass level mobilization and awareness creation about the disease be helpful in eradicating?
Relevant answer
Answer
Apart from awareness creation about basic symptoms of disease, a lot needs to be done in the area of stigmatization. Infected persons especially females may be reluctant to seek medical help because of stigmatization, and this will hinder control efforts. So emphasis of the social mobilization should rest more on sustained, simple and repetitive information to discourage discrimination against infected and affected persons. This is very vital. Advocacy visits to political leaders and government should engender the desired shift in priority from curative to preventive programs such as community mobilization for adequate participation. In other words, advocacy can lead to political will and commitment by Government in favour of leprosy control and eradication.

Answer
If your goal is to develop communities, then surely they need to be involved in the research through participatory action research methods (which can be both qualitative and quantitative). Communities are "experts" in their own development, and as nearby resident stakeholders, they likely have ideas of how the university is influencing their lives, which would hint at pathways to take.
