Keeping Local Stewardship

Establishing partnerships or securing political or financial support, while useful for the purposes of a development initiative, also involves bringing new actors to the scene, each with their own interests, perspectives, and work methodologies, which would not always coincide with those of the beneficiaries of the initiative. It is therefore important to establish the necessary mechanisms to ensure that whatever happens, the final stewardship of the initiatives will always remain in the hands of the target communities — such as by using clauses in the terms of reference of collaboration agreements, banking trusts, etc.
