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.
On our July 2018 call, Kavita Mathew of GlobalGiving India shared the findings from visits to their partner organizations across 18 states of India to assess the degree to which they are community-led.
