There are now a number of opportunities to increase the effectiveness and, in this way, also the levels and quality of investment in multi-stakeholder partnering, so long recognised as an essential element in the achievement of global development goals and humanitarian objectives.  This might not sound very innovative, but it is a shared view that, without first, a re-examination of the world views, underlying assumptions and institutions that shape our efforts and the development of new measures to incentivise greater and sustained investment in transformational partnerships and then, the adoption of metrics that incentivise changed behaviour, rather than the status quo, it is likely that we will fail to achieve the step changes that are widely regarded as essential to reduce inequality and insecurity and strengthen resilience and solidarity in societies, rich and poor.

Having worked for a number of years on multi-stakeholder partnerships and accountability, Incitare and its associates are well placed to bring together the best of current practice from government and inter-governmental organisations and agencies, business and civil society, with a view to establishing the degree to which the indicators and standards speak, not only to efficiency and effectiveness in delivering the desired outputs or outcomes, but also to the transformational agenda,.  It is also our intention to offer a number of examples of frameworks that measure social and relational capital and capability which we believe have the potential to accelerate the ‘paradigm shift’ required, with a multiplier effect on sustainable impact.
