We believe that the best people to lead change in a community are the members of that community. Chemonics is dedicated to locally led development that ensures effective, inclusive, and sustainable change wherever we work.

At Chemonics, we firmly believe that global solutions begin with local ideas, local ingenuity, and local leadership. We collaborate with and learn from local colleagues and other stakeholders about the needs and priorities of their communities. We build intentional and sustainable partnerships, providing supplemental technical expertise, tools, and operational support to help local governments, businesses, civil society organizations, and other experts do what they do best: create and scale long-lasting, innovative solutions to their countries’ challenges.

From Colombia to Kenya to Moldova, development works globally when we start locally.
