  • Different expectations (results, commitment)
  • Different working styles
  • All partners busy with their own DIPECHO projects
  • Communication and cooperation among so many organizations.

Challenges 15.

  • By working together with a united voice, advocacy efforts have greater impact.
  • Joint advocacy initiatives provide a vehicle, a platform, for communicating with government at a strategic, rather than project based, level.
  • Through DANI, networks have been established between NGOs and the Government that can be built on into the future.
  • Joint activities require sufficient commitment of time and resources from donors and partners to be successful.
  • A mechanism for ensuring the commitment of all partners throughout the project is essential
  • Working through existing coordination mechanisms i.e. NDMP and DMWG rather than creating a new forum builds local networking capacity and sustainability.
  • A Catalyst forACTION

Lessons Learnt 16.

  • Objectives: To strengthen CBDRM advocacy and implementation through effective networking and joint initiatives
  • Membership:open to DIPECHO partners and interested DM Practitioners. So far11partners have committed to join JANI as core members (SCA, DWF, CARE, NLRC/SRC/VNRC, CECI, Action Aid, WHO, ADPC, ADRA)
