Local Partnering for Development Programmes supports programme staff working with local partners in World Vision’s Development Programme Approach. It provides the basic information needed to get started. ‘Section 1’ explains why working with partners is so important for sustained child well-being, and looks at who possible partners are. ‘Section 2’ shows how partnering is built into the Approach, especially by using the Critical Path. In ‘Section 3’, key partnering principles and types are explained.  ‘Section 4’ gives an overview of the processes, skills and tools for partnering.

These processes, skills and tools, with specific guidance notes can be found at:
