TPI’s cutting-edge, collaborative programmes combine direct support with peer-to-peer exchange and action research to develop the latest theory and practice of collaboration in specific areas, in order to raise whole sector partnering practice.
Philanthropic organisations, including foundations and associations of funders, are uniquely positioned to play their part in aligning and combining the limited human, natural and financial resources of the planet to create more resilient, sustainable and just societies. They are funders, but they can also be partners, drivers of innovation, and catalysts for collective action across sectors.
TPI provides practical support to individual organisations, partnerships and funders navigating the green economy transition to ensure the strongest possible collaborations.
From our vantage point supporting partnerships for sustainable development across the UN, the private sector, NGOs and government, TPI has excellent visibility of how the climate and nature crises intersect with more traditional international development programmes.
Many development challenges are complex and intractable, particularly those involving populations who are marginalised. This makes them impossible to solve with traditional single-sector approaches. In response, a variety of multi-stakeholder approaches have emerged to leverage the diverse perspectives, that are needed to create new, integrated, more systemic development programmes.
For the mining industry to maximise its potential as a transformational partner in sustainable development, it needs to be institutionally optimised for systematic, effective partnering. This means supportive leadership, a clear and compelling partnering strategy, the right systems and processes, the skills and culture, and the right connections and relationships across stakeholders.
