Summary

Researchers conducted individual and group interviews with 76 individuals in Dinar, Turkey, from August 14 to 21, 1990. They also observed numerous expressions of local economic activity. Findings indicated the population appeared ample to support increased economic activities despite some danger of a brain drain. The natural resources and the local labor force could support increased economic activities. Community power resources alone were, however, not sufficient to bring about economic development. Public attitudes supported economic development. Although conditions of access and equity were not ideal, the general state of education in the district did not present an obstacle to economic development. Two recommendations were made: funding should be sought to initiate economic development activities and any economic development plan should meet certain criteria, namely that planned economic activities should be labor intensive, capitalize on the current work skills of the local labor force, respect the traditional nature of the people, be based on local input, and include start-up capital from outside Dinar. Components of such a plan were identified: provision to meet the needs of women, provision to meet the employment needs of youth, and refinement of the education and training system. (YLB)
