It critiques the standard approaches that provide top-down solutions focusing on either investment, technological change or the advancement of human capital. In their place, it offers a new paradigm based on emergent good development practice, to work from below to enable communities rather than imposing change from above, through what Robin Eversole calls ‘place based development’.
