    This article considers local development from the point of view of the ecological sustainability of the economic process. We put forward ideas that help to provide a view of local development that is in line with the concept of sustainable development. First we take a strategic approach to the idea of economic development as a material process, describing the capacities on which it is based. We then highlight the fundamental features of the strategic view of local development, which has created wealth over the last two decades, and the trends that question the current model of development. All of this will help us justify the need for a change of model and the importance of local involvement in putting it into practice, to agree on how the strategic field of sustainable local development should provisionally be defined.
