 Without strong local institutions and motivated staff, decentralization andhuman settlements reform will not deliver the desired development outcomes. Yet, many local authorities and civil society organisations lackthe human resources required to meet urgent needs. Training and capacitybuilding is therefore a wise investment into the future sustainability of our cities. The Training and Capacity Building Branch (TCBB) of UN-HABITATsupports national training institutions to build their capacity to implement innovative programmes, focusing on local governance and sustainablehuman settlements development. Typical activities include training needsassessment, development of manuals, training of trainers, and impact evaluation. TCBB products have been successfully adapted and translatedinto over 20 languages.This Action Guide is the fourth in the series on Promoting Local EconomicDevelopment (LED) through Strategic Planning. The series is comprised of  Volume 1 Quick Guide, Volume 2 Manual, Volume 3 Toolkit, and Volume 4 - Action Guide. The Action Guide identifies possible LED actionsand illustrates what communities around the world are doing to promoteLED. These actions are intended to spark creativity in generating practicalsolutions or in adapting them to the local context. The actions and casestudies contained in the book are of four categories: Local Government Policy and Regulation, Initial Actions, Advanced Actions and Broad-Based Actions. Facilitators can use the highlights of case studies documentedand cited in this book to inspire and stimulate stakeholders in generatingappropriate responses to the local economic development challenges. Thefour-volume LED Series is a resource for local governments, businessesand civil society organizations prepared to initiate and implement LEDinterventions through locally owned and driven strategic planning process.ISBN 92-1-131725-8HS 737//05EPromoting Local Economic Development through Strategic Planning –  Volume 4: Action Guide92-1-131721-5 (Series)
