The Movement for Community-Led Development, initiated by a group of international organizations, is calling for a process that empowers citizens at the local level.
The founding members include among others are Action Against Hunger, CARE, Heifer International, The Hunger Project, IFPRI and Save the Children. The movement is built on the common belief that integrated and community-led solutions at the local level are critical to the effectiveness and sustainability of ending extreme hunger and poverty.
The movement—which encourages other organizations and individuals to join them—will work as a catalyst to raise the profile of community-led development, advocate for an enabling policy environment and funding, share best practices, analyze results, generate and disseminate evidence of the importance of community-led development, and take the practice to scale.
