Building sustainable and well-functioning communities is one of the primary keys to the development of the modern society. Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change in their own neighborhoods. Locality Development has been identified as a model of social innovation consistent with the objectives of community integration, empowerment, and sustainability.  In this model, the collaborative leadership is introduced as one of the best ways to lead and unite members of the community to progress and accomplish the community program goals, defined by its vision and mission.
