The paper draws on The Hunger Project’s 30 years of experience across Africa, South Asia and Latin America in pioneering systematic, holistic methodologies to empower women and men to take charge of their own development.
The Hunger Project’s Executive Vice President John Coonrod, shared the paper’s purpose: “many organizations deeply believe in this kind of approach, but we have all used ‘in-house’ language to describe it. This has prevented policy makers from seeing these approaches as a disciplined science and has made collective advocacy almost impossible.” The paper has adopted the shared language of the Movement for Community-led Development, in hopes of contributing to a broad policy dialogue.
