The specific strategies identified in this site with the symbol “♣“, show a list of texts that were extracted from the narratives of the case studies covered in this study.
These extracts of text refer to how the development initiatives investigated concretely carry out these strategies according to their context, the reasons why they use them, the difficulties they face in implementing them and/or what they mean for their capacity of self-sustainability.
If these texts are repeated in some strategies, it is because some of the measures they describe serve different purposes.
Since the texts can be in English or Spanish, please use the side menu translator.
In order to ensure the confidentiality of the initiatives investigated, the names of these are replaced by the legend “[Esta/la iniciativa]” in the case of Spanish texts, and the legend “[This / the initiative]” in the case of texts in English.
