Key for building the local capacity required to sustain a development initiative and reduce its dependence on sources of political, technical or financial support from abroad, is to create the conditions for its emergence. This requires directly addressing everything that hinders this capacity, that is, its corrosive disadvantages.

Examples range from carrying out specific actions to modify inappropriate external evaluation mechanisms or incentives, transforming harmful local cultural patterns, etc.
