Connecting local responses around the world
CORE (Collaboration for Resilience) Approach is a powerful approach to deal with Multi-Actors Platform and I also found this complimentary to the CLCP (Community Life Competency Process) that AAS program in Cambodia office is trying to adapt in its Community Visioning exercise. While CLCP is an approach that is developed to organize community to develop common dream, do self-assessment (to assess the dream to reality), developing community action plan, the CORE approach would a complimentary tools when local facilitators need it for developing MAP in order to engage relevant actors (stakeholders) in the process of implementation of action plan.
There are also some overlapping area between the CORE and CLCP process such as listening (in CLCP calls it appreciation and listening) and choice (CLCP calls it developing action plan). Another overlapping area is the key principles of CLCP and CORE which is process (we need to trust the process and let it go), people (give equal opportunity to everyone) and purpose. In CLCP, people is the center of the process.
