Community Investment: Focusing on the System

This working paper reviews initial work on community investment (CI) as system. CI is defined here as investments intended to achieve social and environmental benefits in underserved communities

Our goal in writing it is threefold:

• To encourage people to think about the system for organizing CI demand,

• To suggest ways to make the system visible and tractable in a given place, and

• To offer some suggestions based on current and past efforts on how to make the CI system more robust.
