Certainty

Initiatives must ensure supporters that their support and participation will be well taken advantage of. There are several reasons for this:

• Financial resources for development are scarce, which has accentuated a climate of competition among The ability to demonstrate results and efficient resource management are the privileged criteria (which is known as the value for money approach).

• Corruption and politicization in development generate apathy and distrust and thus discourage funding and participation.

Development initiatives’ ability to secure funding and support is directly related to measures that:

• demonstrate a track record of success, compliance and effectiveness

• guarantee the transparency, behavior, and stability of resources and staff

• shows local appropriation.

• ensure the clear viability of their projects

• clarify the prudent and effective management of the budget and of the intervention in general.
