One of the major weaknesses in local experiences of rural development is systematization. Although the end of the process is able to identify the results, generally the method or the way to get there are not documented. For example, those experiences that are successful, leaving the actors motivated and fail to interest others, often are not recorded in writing, only those who participated have such information and usually in their memory. The risk with keeping experiences in the memory is not just that memories may fail, but also that it will die with those who whoever holds them.
