MetadataShow full item record
This document outlines the current physical and economic state of the village of Barranco. Barranco Village is suffering from significant human capital drain as its local residents continue to migrate from their rural community to the urban settings in search of greater employment and educational opportunities. After initial research of Barranco and similar communities, a participatory development bottom up approach was employed to gather the data required to assist the researcher in compiling and creating strategies to enhance and reinvigorate the once vibrant agrarian and fishing economy. With the assistance and participation of community members, leaders, experts in rural and economic development, and senior management in Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) through a world café, questionnaires, and interviews, the needs of the community were discussed and analyzed. Recommendations have been developed in the form of strategies tailored specifically for Barranco Village’s structured and planned economic development of/for action and revival.
