There will always be a gap between the vision of a development initiative and the actual conditions of its implementation. Thus, it’s crucial to have spaces and mechanisms for planning, flexibility and adaptation that allow a global perspective of their projects, as well as to identify challenges and create alternatives.
To this end, some initiatives have created working groups to:
- Question and provide guidelines on the performance of the initiative on a regular basis.
- Identify ideas and from within the initiative and observe other organizations that would help the initiative to innovate.
- Propose pilot projects and hold events to discuss ideas, proposals, and feedback.
- Strengthen the initiative’s institutional integration, ensuring that its programs and administrative processes are coordinated so they can share human, infrastructural, financial and other resources.
