Initiatives for Sustainable Development

Sustainability DiagramSHGO’s strategy is based on a comprehensive model for grassroots community development that fosters local ownership, capacity-building, and empowerment. The three spheres - ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL and SOCIAL – represent key elements of sustainable development and show their interconnected nature. SHGO’s strategy promotes the idea that, for development to truly work, all three spheres must be addressed in tandem.
