Tailormade Support

Collaborative Partnerships
Develop influential partnerships to advance social change

"Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success." Henry Ford


Do you need new ideas, approaches, and practical support to build influential partnerships, such as multi-actor partnerships (MAP), civil society alliances, or strategic partnership?  


Many issues can simply not be addressed by an organization alone: They might be too big or too complex. Since the 18th century, inspirational leaders, such as the founder of the Red Cross Henry Dunant, realized that it requires an alliance of influential people or organizations to bring about social change and improved policies at national and international level.


Key processes we support 


  • Developing a common purpose and a resonating narrative 

  • Inciting a collaborative culture in the alliance, but also in each of the partner organizations 

  • Improving capacities to facilitate the partnership and manage collective actions 

  • Planning advocacy campaigns and bringing the partnerships into motion 

  • Adaptive management of alliances and advocacy campaigns 

  • Developing structures and processes to support the partnership 

Our Track Record

  • Since 2017 we give comprehensive support to four Multi-Actor Partnerships that advance land rights in Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone, and Liberia – which gradually develop into effective advocacy platforms   

  • Since 2020 we give comprehensive support to advocacy networks on the Right to Food (RtF) in India, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Malawi
