The Multi-Stakeholder Partnership for a Sustainable Orange Juice Value Chain from Germany, Europe to Brazil by the Christliche Initiative Romero (CIR) aims to improve the working conditions of farmers and manufacturers and wants to strengthen civil society as well as unions in Brazil. For this CIR is working with traders, unions, local communities, academia in Germany and Brazil as well as international platforms in Europe. CLI supports CIR through a long-term capacity development for structured and goal oriented dialogue, facilitation and cooperation with the stakeholders from the diverse collaboration systems along the supply chain. As of 2019, these core actors have succeeded in creating a skilled core team in Germany committed to give Brazilian workers a voice so that they can design alternatives for their pathway towards respected core labour standards and fundamental social rights.

USA - World Bank Global Leadership Forum

“How can we help governments, civil society, and entrepreneurs form effective coalitions for change?” was a working group discussion led by Dominic Stucker, Senior Project Manager at the Collective Leadership Institute (CLI), at the World Bank Global Leadership Forum 2016 in Washington, USA. The Forum was the inaugural event of the newly formed Global Partnership on Collaborative Leadership for Development (GPCL4D) that puts Leadership and Coalitions at the centre of international development practices. The GPCL4D aims to move the collaborative leadership agenda forward by creating a sustainable partnership among like-minded practitioners committed to addressing the important role Leadership and Coalitions play in promoting development solutions.

Honduras - Technical Innovation Roundtable
Technical Innovation Roundtable in Honduras

The competitiveness of the Central American region has not increased enough to overcome certain development problems. In order to improve this situation, a cooperation between the academic, private and public sector was created in the form of the Technical Innovation Roundtable, which focuses on mid- and long-term oriented work like strengthening university education as well as short term-initiatives. The GIZ helped with the creation of this project, supports the Roundtable through strategic planning, advisory and capacity building functions and chose CLI’s stakeholder dialogue approach as a way to conduct a result-oriented process and promote change.

Peru - CLI's first open course in Latin America

In 2013 CLI conducted an open course for development cooperation professionals and their project partners in Lima, Peru. 22 participants from Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Mexico gathered for a four-day training on stakeholder dialogues. The topics of the participants’ projects were very diverse, e.g. water management, biodiversity, rights protection of indigenous people, public sector reforms, and many more. They learned to apply CLI’s Dialogic Change Model as a guiding methodology to achieve common goals with their stakeholders.
