This website was launched in 2014 to publicize the Doing Development Differently (DDD) manifesto signed by over 400 signatories from over 60 countries on how to improve sustainable development practices. The manifesto states that development initiatives should adhere to the following principles in order to complete sustainable social development:
- Focus on local issues, with local people.
- Legitimize projects at all levels (political, managerial and social), building ownership among local communities.
- Mobilize all those with a stake in progress.
- Foster learning from both success and failure.
- Manage risks by making ‘small bets.'
- Build trust, empower people and promote sustainability.
