BACA-TAVIRA, Norma  and  HERRERA-TAPIA, Francisco. Social projects. Notes on their design and management in rural territories. Convergencia [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.72, pp.69-87. ISSN 2448-5799.

The paper describes and critically analyzes the main steps in the development of social projects; the latter are seen as tools of collective management in solving problems of general interest. Especially, implications for the implementation and assessment of the impacts of social projects in rural areas are emphasized; spaces where scenes of poverty and marginalization persist. Also, there is a need to analyze comprehensively the formulation and development of projects, and it is necessary to particularly emphasize the participatory inclusion of stakeholders and greater confidence and legitimacy to cope with poverty and promote development. Finally, the text suggests guidelines and recommendations in the process of managing social projects that can be useful for managers, field technicians, community workers, including dynamic agents of rural territories.

Keywords : social projects; management; participation; territory; rural.
