Trans-generational approach

“To exit the well we must stop digging”

Luis Lopezllera, Red Multitrueque Tlaloc.

To adopt a trans-generational approach development initiatives must take a position on their role in resolving the social problem that they are addressing. They must also reflect on the approach they intend to use to address the problem, and choose the institutional profile that will enable them to accomplish this.

These questions have a direct bearing on the allocation, the purposes, and the long- term planning of the funds, and on the initiative’s design in general.

The questions affect the extent to which an initiative can achieve an integral character, pluralistic relevance, and equitable ownership. I.e. sustainability and scalability.
