The workshop will point attention how it is possible to combine what is today an urgent need to a future long-term project of a community growth. Starting from a systemic project approach, passing through the measurable impact of the action and arriving to the economic development.
The case history will be pointed in to the Haitian life conditions.
Social programs can be really effective with a combination of insight and scientific evidence.
The insight as the acceptation of the understanding, the deep motivations that drive behaviors. This kind of understanding is possible only living with population, knowing them, speaking with them. But it is not sufficient to understand the real effects of the social program so only a structured and scientific evidence can measure the impact and can improve the sustainability and the efficacy as well as an economic progress.
So the objective is to demonstrate that all are necessary:
- the insight in order to recognize the need and as a push starting (projects on field)
- the scientific evidence: to measure in order to improve impact (research)
- the long-term economic sustainability to guarantee a development based on food access for everyone concept. (microcredit)
