Economic Development Factsheet

economic development factsheetGlobal Communities’ economic development programs aim to catalyze sustainable and inclusive economic growth by strengthening the capacity and integration of economic actors to effectively pursue market-based opportunities. Our programs increase incomes and support local economies through assisting in the development of micro, small and medium-size enterprises; strengthening household resiliency; fostering private sector-driven workforce development; creating expanded access to financial services; and supporting local governments in creating business enabling environments—being especially mindful of the needs of youth, women and marginalized groups. We use a systems-based approach that relies on comprehensive analysis, local capacity building, market facilitation, and sustainable solutions identified and implemented in collaboration with the private sector and local partners.
