Local and regional economic development (LRED) toolkit: A Participatory Approach for Building Sustainable Local Economies

Guidance and systemization of experiences

The Toolkit starts by providing an overview of the essential characteristics of the approach and placing it in the context of the concept of systemic competitiveness and green growth. Chapter 2 discusses the steps in the LRED cycle describing the activities and steps that are necessary for getting an LRED process started and bringing it to a full cycle of implementation and replanning. It contains links to specific documents and manuals that are applicable for that particular step. A process flow for selected steps illustrates the set of activities that take place and the role of the different stakeholders—LRED Process facilitator, LGU, local stakeholders. Chapter 3, titled LRED Tools, presents a detailed description of the LRED tools, including a summary matrix of the LRED tools and their practical application.
