This chapter suggests that community learning and development centers (CLDCs) are best placed in local communities and organized from the ground up, but in order to work they will need a mediating point of liaison with government-supported focal points. These district-level focal points would provide a new face between communities and government, potentially responding to some of the problems of communication that the various layers of government—ward, local level, district, provincial, and national—have thus failed to overcome. The Organic Law and its focus on provincial political representation have not worked to mediate relations between local communities and the national polity.
