Increased local cooperation is a well understood processes used by experienced regional development and/or local capacity building practitioners (practitioners) to help stakeholders with local capacity building. However, there are some situations, like for example, tourism development in areas, with little or no experienced practitioners available. Thus this paper outlines a starting point for new practitioners in such situations, to improve local cooperation based largely on readily accessible material. In practice it matters little where the new practitioners start, it matters much more that they actually start to increase cooperation between locals (Monypenny, 2008).

The wisdom that current practitioners have is an excellent support to new practitioners in terms of: • The drivers of regional development. • The drivers of local cooperation. • The practical next steps that locals could consider taking to help them grow local cooperation.

We encourage new practitioners to seek the wisdom of more experienced local practitioners.
