Development happens in communities. It is in communities where women, men and youth can discover their voice, assert their rights, and mobilize action to achieve their aspirations.
As individuals and organizations committed to the successful implementation of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we call for enhancing the power and capacity of communities to take charge of their own development.
In addition to the excellent websites of our members, here are additional collective efforts and networks relevant to advancing community-led development.
