Regional Wealth Creation Case Studies

Posted on: October 6th, 2016 by Carrie Kissel

In 2016, the NADO Research Foundation released the Regional Wealth Creation Case Studies.  These case studies feature three regions working on economic development initiatives that build multiple forms of wealth, root economies in place with local ownership and control of assets, and intentionally include people at the margins of the economy as beneficiaries of economic development work.

These efforts are working to build social, political, cultural, built, intellectual, individual, financial, and natural assets, without harming community assets by identifying demand for a products that can be produced or developed within a region.  Value chains, or networks of people and organizations working together on a market opportunity, are a tool for building an economy that is rooted in a place.
