Local Economic Development Sensitizing Package - Module 5

Module 5 - An enabling environment for LED

Instructional material | 15 November 2005
This module will examine the impact of the local, regional, and national environment on the LED process. It will discuss the importance of local, regional, and national actors within the process, as well as the role played by regulations and policies at the regional and national scale. The main factors constraining and facilitating the application of the LED approach will be identified. In general, the module seeks to convey the message that, even though LED is a locally-owned and implemented project, the national and regional environments within which it evolves have an important influence on the likelihood of its success.
