Five principles for network success in Solomon Islands

In Solomon Islands, networks consisting of multiple partners are gaining momentum because of their potential to improve the capacity of communities, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and government stakeholders to achieve their goals. Many organizations see the value of creating, leading and being a part of networks, and there are some examples of where these investments have led to bigger or more widespread outcomes than organizations could have achieved on their own. Nevertheless, strong networks can be difficult to establish and maintain, and they often come at a considerable cost of time and money to bring people together. Determining and sharing lessons from networks will help to overcome these and other challenges and avoid recurrence of failures while delivering optimal results into the future.
