dc.description.alternativeAbstractAbstract In recent times, if there is any concept that has not been vastly exploited, it?s certainly not community development. The planners have all done their best to see it work and for these, there have been a remarkable improvement on the development of local communities. But in all of these efforts there is a missing link, as hard as the various actors try (the international organizations, the governments, and local NGOs,) to make it go faster and easier, they have been a slow rate of progress as far as development is concern. The searchers have come in using the participatory approach to involve the local population in developmental projects but it seems difficult to pin point what is happening especially in the North West region of Cameroon. It is in this light that this thesis in the mist of others will try to identify the role of the woman. Looking at the plight of women today in developing countries, their role in development is greatly ignored. The planners have totally ignored the role of women in the numerous policies and project design. Despite the popular saying; ?behind a successful man is a woman?. This virtue is headily identified. This thesis will identify the contribution of women and see how they can be empowered and given the chance to contribute their quota as concern community development.-
