Local First

Local First is an approach to international development that prioritises the views and leadership of people and organisations in the countries affected, over those of outsiders from the international community.

The Local First website aims to develop a community of practice and knowledge around this approach, and to offer information and debate for those who are already working or would like to work in a Local First way.

The first step of the campaign has been the launch of a set of case studies of successful Local First projects. You can read these heredownload a summary of them, or buy a book of the case studies.
