Each sector brings a different set of values, priorities, resources and competencies to a partnership. The challenge of any partnership is to bring these diverse contributions together, linked by a common vision in order to achieve sustainable development goals.
Below are resources and guides published by the Network to drive better partnerships by finding common goals, setting out clear expectations and planning for mutual success.

Using the inputs from a range of real-life case studies, the guide will benefit academics, NGOs and consultants seeking to collaborate with Churches on research-based activities.
How to Partner for Development Research
A practical, user-friendly guide for academics and practitioners to apply at all stages of the partnership process. Featuring practical tools and good practice case studies, this resource is an essential reference throughout the partnership process.
