In the last few years, international cooperation has played an innovative role within the processes of local development in different corners of the planet.

Horizontal and vertical network models have created further models of sustainable local development by focusing more on people. Communities have created these models also including vulnerable groups and trying to bring out their population from material and intangible indigence.
