The objective of the NSP is to improve network effectiveness to meet their member’s needs and enhance their long-term sustainability. The content of the program includes: membership and benefits, distributed leadership, network governance, financial systems and sustainability, and communications for resource mobilization. The program includes preparatory work to adapt the program to specific network needs, three workshops, and a follow-up phase. The NSP is highly participatory and based on adult learning methodologies. It allows network managers to develop both short-term and long-term plans to strengthen their networks. Team leaders from the network serve as coaches to help the NSP participants implement their plans.
