  • Policy framework

    Policy framework: work within the requirements of the SPHEIR grant agreement and the policy framework of each partner’s Government.

  • Operational clarity

    Operational clarity, in any Partnership project proposals and clearly defined and adopted individual Sub-Grant Agreements for each Partner, containing budgets, and disbursements, reporting and audit schedules for the disbursement and use of any donor funds secured.

  • Balanced flow of information

    Balanced flow of information as demonstrated through the level of internal and external availability, access, flow, and exchange of critical information through sharing reports, participating in meetings and provision of any additional and relevant information.

  • Shared values

    Shared values in development programmes as demonstrated through full compliance with the values agreed at the meetings to set up the Partnership, and as expressed in this document.

  • Equitable power

    Equitable power relationships demonstrated through transparent and participatory decision-making mechanisms of the Strategic Management Board.

  • Mutual accountability

    Mutual accountability as addressed through a responsive attention to stakeholders requirements, needs and interests. This comprises the accountability to all other Partners and a focus on accountability to beneficiaries, who are most important to the delivery of this and all programmes.

  • Shared ownership

    Shared ownership of the work plan and related achievements as evidenced through joint activity design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and mutual feedback. At the programme implementation level, the Partners agree to work alongside one another wherever applicable or feasible in the geographical context in which the respective organisations operate. Partners will not duplicate, but will complement each other and work in a spirit of doing what is best for the beneficiaries.

  • Mutual respect and trust as evidence

    Mutual respect and trust as evidenced through better knowledge and understanding of each organisational realities and recognition and value of its competencies and contributions (individual skills, comparative advantage of the partnership).
