Abstract: The present studies were made on the performance of six imported cultivars and one local selection of almond strain at the Horticultural Research Station, Soan Valley Nowshera, Khushab during 1997 to 1999. Local selection almond strain gave a little earlier bloom while all other cultivars were late. However, all tested cultivars matured at the same time during second week of July. Jordonela, Non-perial, Neplus-Ultra, Vesta and Mission are thin shelled while local selection kernel percentage were produced by Jordonela and minimum in Mission and local selection. Is medium thick shell. Maximum nut length, nut thickness, kernel length, kernel weight and kernel percentage were produced by Jordenela and minimum in Mission and local selection. Yield in terms of number of fruit per tree and nut weight per tree was maximum in Nepus-Ultra followed by Non-Perial and Jordonola. Kernel breadth was maximum in Mission.

World Bank and other donor agencies appreciating as well as promoting Community based development for sustainable development. New good governance practices have taken initiatives to involve citizen in decision making process for public asset management, aim to wider the citizen representation in society because consumer need base development is more preferred than politically imposed development. This paper addresses the external factors which segregate the citizen involvement in development. To test the claim that decentralization and good governance may be widening the horizon of citizen participation, this paper uses the case study of Citizen Community Boards (CCB’s) in Pakistan. Results shows that the segregating factors resist the community empowerment. The current system fails to address the basic needs of local community. Involvement of minorities may improve the situation, if these groups are provided an opportunity to participate in decision making.
