Civic Strategies is a collaborative and strategic planning firm that works with local governments and civic organizations. We also write about, teach, and consult about community change and civic leadership.

Please allow us to introduce ourselves at Civic Strategies and tell you who we are and how we could help your organization and community.

The materials on this site are copyrighted, but you are free to download anything you find for your personal use or to use as a handout for your civic group. You can also link to our articles in tweets, blogs, and websites.

At Civic Strategies, we're more than consultants. We're researchers and writers with a deep interest in what makes cities successful. An example is our multimedia book "The Great Project." It's the story of a city that tried for 20 years to save its downtown, and the remarkable project that finally turned things around.

Civic Strategies' clients often come to us when the way forward is not clear to them, when the community's political, economic, or social climate has changed, or when there are opportunities requiring new stakeholders and collaborations.

We help governments and organizations find their way through major decisions with authoritative research, logical processes, even-handed facilitation, and state-of-the-art community outreach and citizen engagement.

The result: good decisions, arrived at in fair and open ways, that generate widespread support.

What we do

Retreats and strategic planning : We help governments and organizations plan for uncertain times, tough issues, exciting opportunities, and new collaborations.

Community visioning : Visioning is about listening to citizens, but it's also about translating those dreams into achievable initiatives. We'll show you how to engage citizens and create ambitious but realistic goals.

Task force management : The best way to find answers to challenging problems using a collaborative approach is with a well-designed, well-managed task force. We help task forces find the right answers and do it in the right way.

Research, consulting, and training : We wrote the book on how communities take on great projects successfully. Literally, the book ... along with the blog, the podcast, reports, seminars and consultations. We can help your organization create great projects, too.

Seven Lessons for Local Governments

In 2002, we began a five-year partnership with Governing magazine to publish a column about cities and regions called Urban Notebook. As a parting gift for Governing's readers, we published an article titled " Fine Jewelry Laura Ashley Diamond Accent Genuine White Opal 10K Gold 108mm Stud Earrings S9ARXlAh6
," which looked back on the major themes of Urban Notebook.

Among the lessons: Density is a city's friend, local governments need the property tax, transportation and land use are inseparable, and cities must find new ways of building leadership. We have the column in our Resources section, so you can read the lessons (and click through to the individual columns).

Civic Strategies Podcast

Our purpose is to help our clients solve their problems and strengthen their civic assets. But we have another ambition, which is to help communities everywhere build leadership.

We've compiled a series of lessons in local leadership through a podcast we produce with the Georgia Municipal Association. The lessons are inspiring and educational and available for other websites to host. For more information, please click here.

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere

We preach to our clients the value of building a sense of community through communications and social media. And we practice it ourselves. So you can find us (or our founder, Otis White) on Angara Peridot and Diamond Trillium Flower Stud Earrings 9dsuQ4R6
, Angara Graduated Round Pink Sapphire Three Stone Pendant in 14K Rose Gold maWQogfDaj
, in podcasts , in Governing magazine , and in Otis' blog about civic leadership . To begin, join us on Twitter and Facebook, and learn what's going on that should be of interest to civic leaders everywhere.

When India and Pakistan became independent 70 years ago, they were at the same level of development, with both equally poor and wretched. But the economic gap between them is growing.

Persistent underdevelopment has afflicted the Indian subcontinent since the region was unshackled from the chains of British colonial domination seven decades ago. South Asia's growth and development have been underwhelming compared to those of places like Northeast and Southeast Asia.

The region's independence from British rule was marked by its partitioning along religious lines, giving birth to a Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan as two independent countries. At the time of their independence in 1947, they both found themselves at a similar level of socio-economic development. The two newly formed nations were desperately poor and desiccated, home to hundreds of millions of destitute, illiterate and malnourished people.

India started its independent journey with an advantageby inheriting public institutions set up by the British during their rule. It also had a bigger share of the urban population, industry and transportation infrastructure. Pakistan, on the other hand, hadthe upper hand in agriculture, as the nation's territory composed of a huge tract of the alluvial, irrigated land of Punjab.
