    Community-based activities are on-going in many communities in most countries. This briefing package proposes a process for bringing principal partners together for planning and implementation procedures at national, intermediary, district and community levels. This process will enable the development of coherent strategic and operational plans at various levels, which will facilitate the sharing of experiences, resources and expertise among projects and geographical areas, and will help ensure consistency. The process is best carried out with the assistance of a facilitator.
