Community development is the process of increasing the strength and effectiveness of communities, improving people's quality of life, and enabling people to participate in decision making to achieve greater long-term control over their lives. Sustainable community development programs are those that contribute to the long-term strengthening of community viability. Discovery of these programs is the primary goal of the CSD Team currently being put into action for the L, S&K Mine Projects.

They are not about helping the community move forward, but rather focus on making sure that the community does not go backwards. A different and more comprehensive set of principles is required to drive change at the personal, family and community levels.
