Using a community-led development lens, this paper discusses public policy and implementation for complex problems such as child poverty. It brings in the principles of CLD as it asks government to act differently and to recognise the value of local wisdom when working with those most affected by social, economic and environmental issues.
Ideas from Inspiring Communities (Donna Provoost is our Chair), Whānau Ora, Vibrant Communities Canada, the Scottish Community Development Centre and more are included.
