The new 2030 development agenda forces us to rethink the planning and structure of development cooperation. At Coop4equality we contribute our many years of experience and expertise in cooperation and gender equality, both from the private non-profit and the public sectors.
The development cooperation cluster is built to reinforce the coordination between donors through the creation of a shared agenda with a set of common goals. Its creation aims to achieve a bigger impact than the one resulting from the mere sum of individual impacts of all integrating organizations.
Despite its focus on the coordination between donors working in the same area/country, the development cluster must allow a better collective communication with the aid recipients, thus facilitating a more efficient identification of the needs and the rights violations, and an integral planning of development actions.
Thus, the cluster defines the relationship between donors, but it also represents a realignment of their relationship with the aid recipients. Besides avoiding duplicities in the supply of aid, the creation of a cluster must represent the successful rationalization of the communication with partner agents, which will result in a better appropriation of aid.
We propose to build development cooperation clusters as the most efficient way to manage development projects, where individuals and their rights take center stage.
What we offer:
- Development of strategic documents on the basis of engagement and consensus.
- Cluster design and management.
- Ongoing assessment and resource search.
- Consultancy services concerning the cluster.
- Coordination and operation of the cluster.
