What is Post Oak Resource Conservation and Development?
Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils that help people care for and protect their natural resources in a way that improves the local economy, environment, and standard of living. RC&D is a way for people to work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.
RC&D is based on the assumption that local citizens, with assistance, can develop and carry out an action-oriented plan for the social, economic, and environmental enrichment of their communities.
The purpose of RC&D is to promote conservation, development, and utilization of natural resources; to improve the general level of economic activity, and to enhance the environment and standard of living in all communities. The aim is to provide a system of rural development, encourage the wise use of natural resources, and improve the quality of life in America.
Diverse groups of local volunteers are brought together in a unique partnership to find solutions to their problems to carry out the RC&D concept. The structure for this process involves:
- Identifying Problems
- Establishing Goals and Objectives
- Developing Alternative Plans
- Implementing Plans
