The International Conference on Community Service Orders in Africa, organised by PRI and the Zimbabwe National Committee on Community Service (ZNCCS), was held in Kadoma, Zimbabwe, from 24-28 November 1997.
Participants at the conference adopted a Declaration agreeing, among other things, that the use of prison should be strictly limited to a measure of last resort and that community service is a positive and cost-effective alternative that should be preferred to a custodial sentence whenever possible.
The Declaration also adopts the attached Plan of Action, which includes an agreement to establish a network of National Committees on Community Service (NCCS) and other interested groups. An agreed Code of Conduct for these National Committees is also attached.
