Through community contracting, a community with a direct beneficial interest in a project takes the responsibility for all or part of the infrastructure construction, rehabilitation or maintenance works under an appropriate contractual relationship (e.g. with the contracting agency or main contractor). Community contracting allows receiving beneficiaries of a project to be direct partners in the undertaking of the project.
