    • Effective local development does not happen by accident.• Local development is an integrated process that works over cycles.• Integration means that economic, social, environmental, spatial, and institutional are interdependent and either mutually reinforcing or contradicting.• Local development requires ‘whole of government’ and ‘multi-sector partnership’ approaches. 3
    • The crisis has not changed the long term drivers for local development Knowledge Economy & Technology Globalisation & Trade Human Mobility and Diversity Demographics Sustainability: governance and environmental.........Still the drivers for long term successIt has added some more drivers....It has stalled some progress......It requires new approaches......It provides a catalyst for wider change................Pro-active City and Regional leadership required.
    • What will be needed?• Local development will need to re-calibrate its role in supporting local economies & communities• Adapt and re-align to external changes in markets, technologies and conditions• Retaining investment and jobs a very important local response to increased mobility in economic systems.• Local leaders will need to restructure, revalidate, or re-engineer local assets and platforms. 5
    • How is Ireland responding?• Putting People First: Active Plan for Effective Local Government has the potential to recalibrate local government and local democracy in Ireland with that of the rest of Europe.• Action for Jobs - Local government has a fundamental role to play in creating the framework conditions necessary to achieve growth and jobs. 6
