TOOL | Community-Led Spectrum

There has been a marked increase in the demand for Community-Led approaches to change as community organizations and some governments want to work more closely with the community. As we embrace these approaches we need to be intentional about what Community-Led means so that communities are not inadvertently acted-upon, and instead are empowered through leadership.

Use this tool to understand various Community-Led approaches, help determine what level of community leadership is most appropriate, and what kind of engagement approaches are needed.
