Voluntary collaborative action requires continuous effort to sustain and strengthen the LP itself. Just as important as planning the technical aspects of ILM is a partnership strengthening strategy. This may build on findings from a capacity or performance assessment. Partnership and leadership strengthening may include actions such as enhancing collaboration, restructuring organizations, engaging new partners, building trust, enhancing negotiation and other skills, improving communications, increasing transparency, sharing leadership roles, building multi-generational leadership or mobilizing financial support. The leadership team or LP membership as a whole can periodically assess progress in partnership strengthening.
