Institutional Development (The Process)
Institutional change or development is to be considered as a processthat is incremental, in that small improvements are made to existingpolicies, without challenging the existing development paradigms. These changes are influenced by previous policy practice andshaped by a wide range of stakeholders. It is hence increasinglyrecognized that institutional change (and social transformation) hasto be seen in terms of larger and longer term transition processes.Building and developing institutions is thus crucial in socialdevelopment efforts where issues of organization of dispersedinterests, improvement of bargaining positions of the socially andeconomically excluded, mutual commitment and inclusiveness arepursued. Institutional development is not a linear process, which canbe carefully designed with the use of a toolbox, but a long-termmulti-stakeholder process in which pull and push factors, powerrelations and bargaining power influence the final outcomes and itsrelevance for poverty alleviation or improved natural resourcemanagement.
