We facilitate and stimulate
Dialogue and partnerships
Through careful negotiation of competing claims in a landscape, we can secure climate resilience, the supply of fresh water and food security for the future. Hence we build the capacity of civil society organisations to engage with businesses, financial institutions and the public sector.
Effective navigation of competing claims in a landscape requires dialogue, collaboration and/or negotiation between multiple actors to reach to a mutual understanding and identify balanced solutions. We build the capacity of civil society organisations to engage with businesses, financial institutions and the public sector. We further facilitate and support collaboration between various actors, such as joint land use planning, multi-stakeholder meetings in the context of strategic environmental assessments or sectoral tables around best practices in the sector of mining, finance or beef.
While the journey toward joint solutions is not straightforward, significant progress has been made around business engagement in, for example, Benin and Zambia. Partners have also learned to involve the financial sector in parts of Indonesia, Paraguay and Zambezi. Collaboration with multiple actors is taking a flight in, for example, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Paraguay and the Philippines.
