Organic Agriculture in Mongolia

CLI successfully conducted a tailored training for the “Multi-Stakeholder Partnership (MSP) for the Partnership for Organic Agriculture (POAg) Project in Mongolia”. CLI’s partners on this project are the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Germany and ADRA Mongolia. The training included participation from the core container and a handpicked group of stakeholders from cooperatives and civil society, as well as from the public and private sector.

Georgia- Climate Change Policy
Climate Change Policy in Georgia

In order to implement Georgia’s national commitments for the implementation of the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change multi-stakeholder collaboration is essential.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has been supporting several processes, including “processes, methodologies and instruments for long-term decarbonization planning and the integration into national targets to fight climate change while also considering economic transformation targets and enhance the capacities of public decision-makers and institutions for the application of necessary integrated and inter-institutional planning processes.”

In this context, the Collective Leadership Institute was asked by GIZ to facilitate a tailored three-day stakeholder engagement workshop for 23 people from the national and provincial levels in September 2018 in Borjomi, in close collaboration with the Climate Change Unit (CCU) in Georgia and the New Climate Institute (NCI) in Germany.

Philippines - Multi-Stakeholder Partnership for Sustainable Tuna Fisheries
Thuna Multi-Stakeholder Partnership in the Philippines

The Multi-Stakeholder Partnership for Sustainable Tuna Fisheries, Livelihoods, and Communities in Mindoro Straits and Lagonoy Gulf, Philippines was initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the Tambuyog Development Center. This MSP promotes equitable and sustainable tuna supply chains and sustainable management of yellowfin tuna in Philippine waters, enhances the socio-economic situation of small-scale handline tuna fishers and secures their livelihoods in the long-term. This initiative is implemented in a partnership with several actors along the tuna supply chain. At the outset of this initiative in 2018, CLI travelled to Manila and trained 28 persons – the core container and a handpicked group of stakeholders from the public and private sectors, NGOs, and representatives of the fisher communities – in the approach of multi-stakeholder collaboration and MSP.

Cambodia - Clean Water for Healthy Communities
Clean Water for Healthy Communities - Civil Society Scholars

Access to clean water is essential for improving the health of children and families, and contributing to a better quality of life in rural Cambodia. Through the donation of the Still Point Foundation in the United States, it was possible to train 6 scholars from civil society organisations as well as three of their public sector partners to CLI’s The Art of Stakeholder Collaboration course in Siem Reap. By building stakeholder dialogue and collaboration capacity among the teams from WaterAid, WaterShed, and ESC Borda, the overall aim was to enhance their respective projects that improve access to clean water for communities.

Afghanistan/Pakistan - Collaboration along the border
Collaboration along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border

The 2,430km border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is mountainous, porous, and fraught with conflict. It is characterized by the illegal trafficking of goods, drugs, and persons. Dialogue and collaboration – on topics such as customs procedures, counter narcotics operations, and facilitation of trade – are nearly non-existent, with relevant actors unwilling to set foot in their neighbour’s country. Suspicions are high and trust is low.

In this context, the Collective Leadership Institute (CLI) built trust with a workshop series among stakeholders of an UNODC programme to stop illegal trafficking of goods, drugs, and persons.

Georgia - Gender Equality
Gender Equality in Georgia

Establishing effective governance structures for cross-cutting issues such as gender equality and women empowerment is inherently complex. The challenge in Georgia is augmented by low public awareness and low political initiative. Using the Stakeholder Dialogues approach, especially Phase 1 of the Dialogic Change Model (DCM) “Exploring and Engaging”, UN Women managed to create a container for change. The success worth celebrating thus far is the appointment of advisory positions for gender equality and women rights by the Georgian Prime Minister.

Join the dialogue

Regular dialogue events bring people from different sectors and backgrounds together to exchange on Collective Leadership themes or across an array of topical issues.

Laos - Partnering for Sustainable Forestry
Partnering for Sustainable Forestry in Laos

Degradation and fragmentation of forests in Laos has accelerated over the past decade, with negative repercussions for communities, biodiversity, and the climate. The EU’s Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan of 2003 invites major wood-producing countries in the tropics to enter into bilateral Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPAs) for trade in verifiable, legally produced wood. Such bilateral agreements can help countries like Laos continue to access the international market, while channelling more revenues into state budget and community pockets. For that to happen, the definition of ‘legal timber production’ in Laos must be developed in a participatory and transparent manner involving all forestry stakeholders.

Afghanistan - Improved Water Resource Management
Water Management in Afghanistan

The Collective Leadership Institute intensively trained 16 members of the Afghan Urban Water Supply and Sewerage Company (AUWSSC) in working with Stakeholder Dialogues, key concepts for achieving common goals, and Success Factors in Stakeholder Dialogues during three tailor-made courses in New Delhi, India in January 2014. The training supported the ministry’s engagement processes relating to water policy, on drafting a water law, and on preparing to set up regional river authorities in order improve the efficiency in managing the water resources in Afghanistan and deliver clean drinking water to the public.
