CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN RURAL COMMUNITIES:SOME OF ITS APPLICATIONS IN THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA

Auther : Dr. Ismail Bin Kutubkhana

 

         The term “Citizen Participation” means all the informal activities which are carried out by citizens at different levels of work to enhance development and cultural changes.  This concept is dealt with, in light of:

 1.     Social and economic development which depends mainly on the mobilization of the individual and social groups living in a certain community whether urban or rural.

 2.     The scientific rules of administration and finance which help in coordinating and managing those different efforts.

 3.     Meetings which are essential to discuss matters on various levels and to draw policies as well as to follow up results.

 4.     Methods of collecting data and training people are among the basic features of all different experiences.

 5.     Ways and means of accelerating social and economic development with the least expenses, the least losses and the best results.

 6.     Effecting harmony between official and non-official activities that helps achieve high productivity and coordination between different practices.

         Within the short period of twenty-five years, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has achieved astonishing results: at the regional level, social and educational development activities such as the efforts exerted to increase the outcome of agricultural and other resources.

         Basically, the strategy implemented aimed at achieving high standards of participation in collecting data and discussing matters.  Meanwhile, local leaders are given a free hand in solving problems and by so doing great confidence in self and goals have become a real motivation for more prosperity.

         The strategy also aimed at increasing and securing the success of projects by training people working as a team with the required changes of values and attitudes.

         At the ministerial level, all ministries concerned are represented by directors who are responsible for the execution and follow up of the planned projects.  Here coordination is highly needed in order to proceed towards more and more achievements.

        Within the so-called “center cells”, each participating unit is divided into sub-units, each of which undertakes a different mission.  These social units are: the agricultural, health, social and educational units.
