The Scoping sub-group was created to answer the following questions:
- What is CLD and how does it appear during the lifecycle of a program?
- What is the current state of CLD programming?
The group has created a CLD Assessment Tool for self, peer, or participatory review and developed a landscape of CLD practice based on 170+ programs across 65 countries.
The Scoping group used a process of inductive reasoning to identify the most important elements of community-led development. Using practitioner experience and literature reviews, the group agreed upon 11 characteristics of CLD. In an examination of how these characteristics appear in program life-cycles, the Scoping group designed the CLD Assessment Tool to enable self, peer or participatory review of CLD programs.
