Collective Impact Methodology
Collective Impact methodology brings together different organizations in a structured manner to achieve social change.
Starts with a Common Agenda, which means coming together to collectively define the problem and create a shared vision to solve it.
Establishes Shared Measurement, which means agreeing to track progress in the same way, which allows for continuous improvement.
Mutually Reinforcing Activities
Fosters Mutually Reinforcing Activities, which means coordinating collective efforts to maximize the end result.
Encourages Continuous Communication, which means building trust and relationships among all participants.
Has a Strong Backbone, which means having a team dedicated to orchestrating the work of the group.
As the ‘Backbone Organization’ of this initiative, The/Nudge Foundation is responsible to both help maintain overall strategic coherence and coordinates, and manage the day-to-day operations and implementation of work, including stakeholder engagement, communications, data collection and analysis, and other responsibilities.
This is a first of its kind pilot in India where different partner organisations are joining forces to take a holistic approach to improve the living conditions of informal waste pickers. The initiative aims to enable the waste pickers’ community to have greater agency to lead secure and dignified lives, and also has a strong focus on equity, addressing the basic needs of marginalized groups such as women and girls (in waste picker households).
