The essence of Community-led Development (CLD) is working together in a place to create and achieve locally-owned visions and goals. Rather than being a model or service, CLD is a planning and development approach.
There are five core Ngā Mātāpono/CLD Principles
- Grow from shared local visions
- Build from strengths
- Work with diverse people and sectors
- Grow collaborative local leadership
- Learn by doing
Implementing all CLD principles at once is sometimes simply not possible – especially in the establishment phases. What matters is starting from where you, your organisation or community are at and then applying a CLD framework to guide how things develop from there.
