Are you involved with a practice, intervention, research or evaluation involving communities in strengthening their local economy?
If so, we would like to hear from you as part of our first evidence review, exploring the evidence on what works to strengthen local economies, and the role of communities within this.
Criteria for submission
We are looking for examples of innovative or unpublished practice, intervention, research or evaluation, where communities are included at the heart of efforts to strengthen local economies. Examples need to meet all of the following criteria.
- Have a primary focus on strengthening local economies, where communities are directly involved in the practice, intervention, research or evaluation.
- Work or projects should be currently in progress or undertaken since 2015.
- Ideally, the example can be shared publicly (we will contact you directly for permission before this happens)
- Examples can be from anywhere in the world
Submitting your information
At this stage, we are asking you to complete a few short questions about your example via the submissions form below.
Along with providing a short description of your practice, intervention, research or evaluation, we welcome any additional information you would like to submit. This can be a report or other documents, written descriptions, quotes, case studies, audio or video recording or any other format that captures what is happening.
If you have formal evaluation or data reports, that’s great, but you don’t need one to submit an example. A description of what you have been doing in your own words is just as interesting to us.
We won’t be asking to make any information public at this stage, it will only be seen by our reviews team. Please remember to include contact details on the submissions form for someone directly involved in the work that we can get in touch with if we need to clarify anything or request permission to use the information publicly.
Here is some more information about our approach.
