Drivers of Sustainability

Sustain-ability

"The ability to maintain and improve on outcomes and goals achieved for children with external support, after that support has ended."Improvements become the norm, and continue without needing external support.

Sustainability

Child well-being

Children enjoy good health

Children experience the love of God and their neighbours

Children are cared for, protected, and participating

Children are educated for life

At the heart of our programme are the TD principles. These are linked directly to five areas of action for sustainability -- known as the Drivers of Sustainability.The Drivers of Sustainability act like the roots of this tree. A tree with strong roots can survive storms and bear "fruit" of child well-being for many years. If we prioritise strengthening these drivers throughout the life of a programme, we equip the community to maintain and improve on child well-being in the future.

Drivers of Sustainability

Use empowering processes throughout programme lifecycle

Intentionally partner and strengthen capacities

Promote positive behaviours and healthy relationships

Promote accountability and strengthen systems

Reduce exposure to risk, and strengthen coping mechanisms

Drivers of Sustainability

Local communities are actively leading their development journey. Girls and boys (including those with disability), families and communities, believe in their ability to address challenges and take opportunities using their own knowledge and resources.

Local organisations across the sectors (including civil society groups, churches, other faith groups, and local community groups) are well-led, and they have the resilience, resources, networks and the capability to work accountably and effectively together.

Unhelpful social norms, values and behaviours are changing. Children are valued and cared for from birth, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or ability. Families and communities are safer, more peaceful and protective. Women and vulnerable groups access decision-making structures, resources and services.

Citizens have the confidence and skills to raise their voices, assert their rights with decision-makers, and hold duty-bearers and institutions accountable for improved service delivery and policy implementation. As a result they contribute to transparency and accountability.

Children and families have more emotional, spiritual and financial resources. Vulnerable children and households are able to increase and diversify income, build assets and access public safety nets. Households, communities and public bodies identify and manage risks, adapt to changes in context, absorb shocks, and care for the natural environment.

Social Accountability

DRIVERS OF SUSTAINABILITY

Unhelpful social norms, values and behaviours are changing. Children are valued and cared for from birth - irrespective of gender, ethnicity or ability. Families and communities are safer, more peaceful and protective. Women and vulnerable groups access decision-making structures, resources and services.

Transformed Relationships

DRIVERS OF SUSTAINABILITY

Programmes measurably improve outcomes for children. These improvements are sustained for a period of time. Our programmes aim to bring measurable benefits for children: like improvements in their health, education, and family relationships. When a World Vision programme closes, we don't expect activities to continue in their entirety . However, we should still see evidence of outcome-related benefits for some time afterwards. This is the "fruit" of our work.There is a difference between these sustained outcomes and the “ability” to sustain and improve child well-being in the long-term (see "sustain-ability").

Key stakeholders in the ecosystem of children continue acting to maintain and improve child well-being. Every child lives within a relational “ecosystem” of family, community, civil society, faith communities, businesses and government. All have potential roles in working positively for child well-being. By applying our TD principles and strengthening the Drivers of Sustainability, we strengthen the community relationships and systems that will sustain child well-being in the long-term.New opportunities and new risks will arise for children in the future. Through the Drivers of Sustainability, World Vision leaves the community equipped and motivated to respond to the changing situation: The community has the ability to sustain child well-being without our support (sustain-ability).

Children and families have more emotional, spiritual and financial resources. Vulnerable children and households are able to increase and diversify income, build assets and access to public safety nets. Households, communities and public bodies also identify and manage risks, adapt to changes in context, absorb shocks and care for the natural environment.

Household and family resilience

DRIVERS OF SUSTAINABILITY

The deep changes that lead to transformational impact and sustainability of impact are not equally possible in every situation.Field offices and programme teams face a "global crisis that threatens progress for children, aggravating deep-rooted poverty and increasing inequality and discrimination." [UNICEF]In challenging situations, we have to adjust our expectations of what can be achieved and sustained.
