Local Economic Development
Global 2020’s local economic development consultancy works with clients dedicated to creating sustainable development projects – from livelihoods and microfinance to value chains and small business support, to rural development finance and more. We support communities of businesses and business people interested in leveraging their work for greater profitability, more job creation and more local economic development. 

Our Local Economic Development (LED) services support community actions to build sustainable economic systems. We have worked with donors to design, develop, manage, and evaluate LED projects. We have been deeply involved in community businesses such as educational and cultural organizations. We have worked with universities and communities on rural development initiatives and local small business training. And we have worked with many levels of government on a variety of local enterprise development projects.
Our approach is driven equally by an understanding of markets, the need to maximize development returns to project stakeholders, and by a keen analytical appreciation of economic and political contexts.
