What Transformation Takes: Evidence of Responsible INGO Transitions to Locally Led Development Around the World  takes readers on a journey to examine responsible transitions from international non-governmental organizations to locally led entities.

The book is a compilation of the 19 case studies from the three-year program, Stopping As Success: Transitioning to locally led development (SAS), led by Peace Direct, CDA Collaborative Learning and Search for Common Ground, with funding from USAID.

The case studies are organized by various themes including partnerships and financial sustainability, with additional insight from the SAS program, including practical lessons for how shifts in international development paradigms can lead to more sustainable, effective and culture- and conflict-sensitive partnerships, contributing to increased local leadership.
