Today, there are more and more non-profits, government agencies, philanthropic institutions and businesses addressing a range of critical social problems across the globe. However, the potential of collaborations between these stakeholders remains under-utilized.
In India, the sheer scale and complexity of the country’s development challenges make collaboration both useful and timely. A collaborative approach is urgently needed to complement the strengths of a number of important players in the development space, including two of the largest and most influential ones – governments and foundations.
As part of a multi-country research series, Dasra, in partnership with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has published a study entitled Bringing foundations and governments closer with insights and perspectives from the Indian market.
This study outlines the current state of foundation-government collaborations in India. It aims to provide a clear understanding of how these influential actors can move forward together to improve development outcomes in the country.
