Organising Local Economic Development

The Role of Development Agencies and Companies

image of Organising Local Economic Development

Development processes occur within a wider geographical area than local government, and in some cases encompass a broader scope than provincial or national governments. Thus substantial inter-governmental co-operation and public-private partnership are needed. This book identifies how development agencies and companies work, what they do and what constitutes success and value added. It explores international practices in a variety of locations and contexts, and defines both the success factors and the challenges associated with economic development agencies and companies.

This book examines the contribution that has been made by agencies, companies, and corporate boards which have proved to be a consistent choice of local government leaders for pursuing local economic strategies.
