Building a better future for children

Network & Partnership

Local communities and government have a special responsibility indeed a crucial role, in advancing sustainable development. From planning for the equitable delivery of public services to sustainable supplies of water, food, health facilities, education services, agricultural services/technologies, access to job and opportunities- local community really matters. Their individual impacts can make or break the area's aspirations for sustainability. This is more important during hard economic times when outside economic forces are all the more punitive to those that are not locally self-reliant. Sustainable development transpires the plans and interventions adhere to processes and policies that follow sustainability as a framework and value. This requires the culture of practice and capacity of integrating environment, economy and social equity.

None of the interventions are proved sustainable without the ownership of local community where the initiations occur. Community ownership is not only the slogan of new development era but it is the primary necessity. Community participation in all stages of project cycle encourages local ownership and the intervention will be sustainable. When communities participate in planning, implementation and monitoring phases of the project, ownership began to rise up. Moreover, people love their investment. When community comes up with possible investment in any infrastructures and local development, they began to love the structures and development initiatives thinking that they have contributed and it belongs to them.

Network is a social structure made up of individuals or organizations, which are connected by one or more types of interdependency. Social capital refers to those stocks of social groups, norms and networks that people can draw upon to solve common problems. There is crucial role of those networks to achieve sustainable development goals such as public health, well being (poverty eradication), water & sanitation, education, environment and so on.  Their power of supporting development is outstanding. The more guided networking efforts can create more favorable environment for development intervention and save people's time and energy. The basic concept of networking is working together. Team building is the primary part of networking along with institutional approaches for working across groups and organizations for partnership in action.
