Partnerships for Development

Every organisation active in promoting sustainable inclusive development understands that this work today requires participation from all the sectors involved.

However, partnering is a complex process. Many partnerships fail to deliver expected outcomes, disappointing their initiators due to the complicated nature of the process being underestimated.

While the benefits of effective partnerships do not appear overnight, common pitfalls can be very costly. Establishing effective and inclusive partnerships requires time and it is important to create the right framework from the very beginning. It implies a systematic process that allows for the implementation of the partnership to be reviewed and monitored on an on-going basis, measuring both success and failure.

Over a number of years working on partnerships with all sectors (private, public, international community, NGOs, civil society, NGOs, civil society, etc.), CAD has developed a series of specific and methodologies that provide answers and solutions to a broad range of situations faced by when engaging in a partnership process.

CAD’s Partnership Strategic Framework

Every partnership has its own characteristics and its own story. Nevertheless, we have observed that they all follow a similar process which we have conceptualised in the partnership’s life cycle.

This model gives a comprehensive framework which helps people thinking about how they develop and deliver their partnerships and overcoming most common pitfalls.
