Dangers to development
讓自己沉浸在環境中 - 生活在其中並研究它。看看激勵是如何起作用的，為什麼人們做他們所做的事情，而不做其他事情。
Eyes on the goal: development
Development projects must be seen as part of a longer process - i.e. development as the goal, rather than a specific project. for that reason, admitting failure and learning from it is essential. An appropriately humble attitude, recognizing that learning is a long process and that mistakes are part of that process, enables development workers avoid the problem of good intentions, disastrous outcomes. In particular, voluntourism is susceptible to naive expectations and approaches, and should be handled with care.
Money and technology traps
Beware of thinking that more money or better technology is enough.
Recognize that subsidies and grants can sometimes enable a project, but are very likely to negative side-effects - plan carefully, and weigh up ways to achieve outcomes apart from giving or spending money.
Recognize the importance of individuals in the process. A program is only as good as the people running it - for this reason, fund people, not concepts.
