Abstract: Endogenous development places the major importance in working with local communities on using people’s own resources, strategies, and initiatives as the basis for their development. It considers not only the material, but also the socio-cultural and the spiritual resources of people, in order to broaden the options when formulating appropriate development paths without romanticizing people’s traditional worldviews and practices. This book provides ideas, guidelines, and examples of how to put endogenous development into practice. It also shows how field staff can be helped to learn, and how training or learning activities can best be organized, to support endogenous development.
