Community Economic Development: Lessons from two years’ action research report

This report is intended to appeal to those interested in understanding more about Community Economic Development (CED). This may include those embarking on developing CED activities in their own communities; policy makers at local or national level keen to build a CED approach into mainstream economic development strategy; or simply those interested in understanding how communities can drive economic development from the ground up.

This report itself serves as an account of our learning, beginning with an analysis of the CED approach itself, based on the Partnership’s work in delivering the programme. Following this, it provides an assessment and discussion of the interventions and models used by areas on the programme, what their key themes were and what worked well.
Case studies provide an illustration of some of the activities, outputs, and wider outcomes achieved over the course of the programme.
