The Community-Driven Impact Assessment (CDIA) is a community development process that increases citizens’ ability to control and improve the well-being of their communities. It builds the capacity of citizens to become active participants in the decisions affecting the well-being of their community. Using the People Assessing Their Health process, communities develop their own CDIA tool, which reflects the community’s values and priorities of what makes people and communities healthy. The tool is used to assess potential positive and negative impacts any policy, program, project or service could have on the well-being of the community and identifies strategies for change. Please note this is not an impact evaluation course.
Who should take the program?
This course is suited for new and/or experienced community development/community health promotion practitioners, policy makers, policy analysts, and advocacy workers.
