Supporting Sustainable Development Initiatives by Reducing Friction in the Local Economy

Community sustainable development is complex. Implementation of sustainable community plans is beyond the local government’s jurisdiction, so requires the involvement of numerous local organizations.

This state of knowledge report will explore collaborative community sustainability strategies (CCSSs) and specific incentives and disincentives for partner engagement in CCSS implementation, and best practices in governance.
