TDC101 Putting the Pieces Together

Pre-TDC Program Studies

One of the factors often correlated positively with successful TDC programs is the existence of studies undertaken prior to conceiving and planning a TDC program. This ‘advance homework’ is often not done solely for the TDC program, and even when it is, communities find the value of these studies ripples into other efforts.

Some examples of pre-TDC studies undertaken in American TDR communities include:
