Contrary to the “one-size-fits-all” approaches of policy making, or a problem-solving method that glosses over social contexts surrounding issues and differences of needs among policy users, place-based approaches offer a wide range of solutions that are tailor-made for local circumstances. Putting communities at the heart of the operation, these approaches mobilise key actors across sectors – notably community members, to engage in policy design. Policies, when suitably localised, are able to respond to the diversity of hopes and fears and the context-specific complexity of issues on the ground.
