Development.. is a process of social and economic  ...   During development, change is not just measured by people having more but by them being more.. It is also a process whereby structures are changed to promote justice, equality and democracy.. Responsible development practice is designed to have a long-term, positive impact on a community.. ADRA believes it is essential to engage the community in the process of planning.. Thus, consultations take place with the local community to determine and prioritize their needs.. This enables the community to have a voice in the decision-making and take ownership of the project.. Relief (or Emergency Response).. projects include short-term assistance given to relieve immediate emergency needs.. This includes projects such as shelter, clothing, food and medical treatment.. Disaster relief activities often transition from this handout mode to development to avoid the creation of dependency and to enable long-term sustainability..
