|Abstract||Executive Summary: A literature review of the approaches to Regional Economic Development was conducted and the best approach, the "Bottom Up Approach", was identified. This approach of local decision making, community participation, and grass roots mobilization was used as the basis for the collection of specific tools to engage the community and focus on their collective assets, as opposed to their list of deficiencies, which usually results from a needs assessment. The identification of these assets was validated a (Environmental Scan). The underpinnings of works from thought leaders in the area of creativity, import replacement, creative destruction and economic sovereignty are always considered through the validation process. Once the assets have been identified, the competitive advantage understood and the target market defined, sustainable Regional Economic Development will occur.|
