Unfortunately, there is no simple recipe for Community-Led Development success. It’s more like raising kids than baking cookies! It’s a complex process and what works with one kid doesn’t always work with the next. Similarly, every community context is different. It takes time to understand each community’s diverse strengths, needs, challenges and dreams. Even when we grow a shared vision, there can be plenty of uncertainty about how to get there. There are no cookie-cutter solutions.

Lots of experimenting, learning by doing and adaptability is needed, by the people with the greatest knowledge of their own local community and the issues it faces.

Here are our Top 10 Tips for success in Community-Led Development.
