Partnership Mapping and MOU - Lindlyn
Got request from board to do partnership analysis / mapping. Working with communities / partners is part of our strategy . Who are theese partners = Toko and Lin back to drawing board. Based building push. Before June = SMT because smt staff retreat = 5 June and this requires presenting at the retreat.
19:00 How to do this / strategy = Agreed on the various thematic strands, then map the partners potential and map? into local nation and regional. Giving time to look at it and also look at political draft. develop a partnership programme / process. difference between local and international MOU. Should we look at the different thematic strands including mou docs. Same partners may form different thematics / maps. Need to look at time line and see how best to layout as teams as well as individuals. Partners might be different. Look at you r projects in the long term as well.
Questions: One project = different partner on diff level e.g research, financial. How will we put this into practice? Will MOU be sent to every partner, will every partner be required in every project. 2. What is the intention of submitting to the Board? They want ot understand what we mean by Partner and how they can assist us with their expertise and this is really for our work and to be informed.
+- 28:00 Normally MOU gives guidance for future projects. Consider that a lot of expectations will be raised with partners, we need to consider how we will put into practical. Have a project in
Emphasis: look at partners in phases. Policy strategy: which partners do you want to take with you throughout your campaign? Partners will inform the MOU process / policy and will not be concluded until we are clear on the partners.
There are different interpretations of what the MOU is. Gentelmans agreement and less red tape to avoid putting too much onto partners and pushing them away
32:00 Write up as discussed by and within teams . 1st check-in Deadline 8 May at Next PLT have at least one of the thematic strands to discuss then final document on 22 May have a full MOU. Include (what SIDD said)
