      Sub-regional Conference on Local Economic Development
      Local Economic Development (LED) has emerged as an attractive alternative to traditional development strategies, its advantage being the ability to tailor strategies to the local setting. The global economy increased inequalities and Regional disparities, resulting in an accelerating trend towards Regional devolution and decentralisation in many parts of the world. This has created opportunities for new strategies based on local economies. The current global economic crisis has exposed the vulnerability of local economies in the global system and has made LED an even more urgent choice.

      Care is a universal feature among all human beings, but the social organisation of care changes over place and time.

In the context of the global financial crisis, growing poverty, food crises, climate change and HIV/AIDS, a care crisis is becoming more and more evident.
