Local partnerships are usually based on a contractual agreement between the local community and the Government or project implementer, and have sometimes involved the creation of legal entities. These partnership agreements also usually provide the community with resources (funding) to facilitate their engagement.

These include some or all of the mechanisms to enable communities to volunteer, withdraw if they wish, establish working groups to develop proposals and negotiate community benefits.They are supported by a facilitator.
