"Local Communities" is an independent, non-profit Palestinian civil organization, established in 2020 that focuses on local development and local government with national, regional, and international dimensions. "Local Communities" seek and aspire to provide local communities a voice in order to empower and develop themes as well as to promote and protect their right to development based on active and meaningful citizens’ participation and an equitable distribution of benefits and resulting gains.

“Local Communities” depends on promoting genuine partnership and collaboration among the constituents of local communities in order to conclude new social contracts that allow for local development achievement within the framework of good, reasonable, and sustainable local governance.
