Abstract:

To build a strong local economy, good practice tells us that each community should undertake a collaborative, strategically planned process to understand, and then act upon, its own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The purpose of local economic development (LED) is to build up the economic capacity of a local area to improve its economic future and the quality of life for all. To support the Local Economic Development in remote area’s a program has been developed based on the LED frame work of the world bank. This approach and the experiences of the last five years with this program will be described in the first part. In the second part of the paper we will describe our experiences with the help of four theoretical concepts: Social Entrepreneurship, Empowerment, Civil Society/Citizenship and Social Capital. We hope to discuss some possible improvements of our approach and also to open up new theoretical questions on the process of Local Economic Development.
