Development planners are involved in planning for disadvantaged

and programmes to meet the needs of these communities. Development
planners are drawn from a wide range of disciplines including social
sciences, town and regional planning, architecture and education
amongst others.

determines the manner in which language and language issues will be
treated in a given community, region or country. He or she consults
with organisations and individuals so that the policy reflects their
