Partnering Solutions & Institutional Design
Governance is an important element of integrated development, and often requires special initiatives. The process of making cities requires cross sector and non-linear partnerships at the interface of public, private and community interests. We have supported organisations to craft effective and responsive mandates, business plans, and develop capacity to respond to the multiple demands of good governance. We can help to set up and design institutions that deliver on multiple mandates. We also offer specialised core fund raising services to non-governmental organisations including M&E frameworks, core proposals and programme design for FOIs (e.g. Foundations, Organisations & Institutions).
