This is stage 2 of a 4 stage COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT EVALUATION RESEARCH PROJECT. We know it’s important to reflect on our past so we are able to chart a course for the future. Therefore, this stage is a retrospective impact analysis of Community Waitakere’s work over the last ten years (2002-2012). We identified 7 key initiatives from this time period, spoke to many of those involved at the time, and generated case studies. These case studies describe the context, discuss the intentions, described processes, and explore learning. Highlighting successes and challenges these case studies are a valuable knowledge source for future work.
