Connecting local responses around the world
Many a time I have been asked how to implement CLCP activities in tandem within a TI project.
The diagram above helps to explain how within the project timeline the TI activities that we implement reduce as we come close to the endline, while the CLCP activities increase, and with transfer spread to other communities long after the project funds are over. The diagram is specific for our project called EMPHASIS and its timelines; the TI activities of which began in 2010 at full pace, which is represented by the base of the light blue triangle. At that point of time there was hardly any CLCP activity, as denoted by the apex of the inverted pink triangle. Thus at the beginning of a TI project the activities flush with funds are many and at full pace.
As the project progress the TI activities cover the designated areas geographically and thematically, and thus by the end line reduce to a point represented by the apex of the light blue triangle. Meanwhile, CLCP activities that have piggy-backed on this TI project have spread by transfer and by the community members, both geographically and thematically far beyond what it was originally envisioned for. This is represented by the ever-increasing and ever-widening base of the inverted pink triangle.
Looking forward to everyone's comments, suggestions, and ideas on this diagram.
