Partnerships for Progress
Developing a sustainable capacity requires a deep understanding of the complete lifecycle of change. From the initial idea to planning and implementation, programs require a holistic approach to ideation, requirements, regulations, as well as an objective view of the stakeholders and drivers that make up the complete operational landscape. The Daniel Group’s “Partnerships for Progress” is designed to support teams anywhere in the world through planned knowledge sharing workshops and mentoring.
Our team works with in-country agencies and groups to produce a well-defined, objective, data-driven basis for action. Our playbooks and libraries empower local people to plan, act, and do … and sustain… change in their local environment.
We actively seek partnerships with in-country organizations to support programs and projects. Using individual and group training, our team provides world-class capacity building support.
Support Across the Lifecycle
Our team works with local groups to build a comprehensive operational landscape to provide objective change drivers, promote transparency, define requirements and illustrate capacity gaps.
Through workshops and mentoring, our team helps organizations understand the impacts of change to local, regional and national scope.
- Policy / Guidance: The Framework helps local organizations understand current policies, laws, statutes and guidance and how they affect (positively and negatively) civil society.
- Organization: The Framework helps local groups understand the organizations involved in change processes: stakeholder identification, organizational structures as well as roles and responsibilities.
- Knowledge / Training: Knowledge is the foundation for capacity building.
- Leadership – UNDP believes that leadership by either an individual or an organization can catalyze the achievement of development objectives. Strong leadership allows for easier adaption to changes, strong leaders can also influence people. It uses coaching and mentoring programmers to help encourage the development of leadership skills such as, priority setting, communication and strategic planning.
- Knowledge – UNDP believes knowledge is the foundation of capacity. It believes greater investments should be made in establishing strong education systems and opportunities for continued learning and the development of professional skills. It supports the engagement in post-secondary education reforms, continued learning and domestic knowledge services.
- Accountability – Implementation of accountability measures facilitates better performance and efficiency. A lack of accountability measures in institutions allows for the proliferation of corruption. UNDP promotes the strengthening of accountability frameworks that monitor and evaluate institutions. It also promotes independent organizations that oversee, monitor and evaluate institutions. It promotes the development of capacities such as literacy and language skills in civil societies that will allow for increased engagement in monitoring institu
