Community Led Development Projects
What is Community Led Development?
Community led development (CLD) strengthens the vitality of communities by activating and weaving the contribution of everyone connected to a place/whenua. It is a way of thinking that's underpinned by five principles. Inspiring Communities has crafted these principles from working with communities:
- Grow from shared local visions
- Build from strengths
- Work with diverse people and sectors
- Grow collaborative local leadership
- Learn by doing
