Responsible Transitions and Partnerships: Issues at Stake
While there are many examples of short-lived or severed partnerships in the development sector, our consortium documented illustrative examples of genuine partnerships and relationships that have been sustained over time, even after the external organization had left a country or a region all together. At previous SAS evidence review meetings, learning events and conference panels, we noted a significant amount of questions and requests for lessons and guidelines on how to responsibly transition from long- term partnerships. This thought piece was developed to highlight key lessons learned on partnership transitions during SAS learning process. It complements the practical guidelines on partnership transitions which are available in a separate document on SAS website.
