We join - and in some cases have founded - Italian and international networks. Promoting partnerships with other NGOs and international bodies allows us greater effectiveness in our actions and places our strategies in broader contexts. For us, development is the result of joint efforts, and therefore we collaborate with other organisations and participate in various associations and networks to contribute with our experience, learn from others and develop analyses and reflections on the complexity of the contexts in which we intervene.
The relations between CISP and other bodies active in the fields of development cooperation and fighting social exclusion are regulated by agreements, partnership agreements and "memorandums of understanding" which frame the ideal motivations as well as the practical and applicative aspects of these relations. In addition to specific operational agreements with public and private bodies - both European and non-European - aimed at the joint implementation of specific projects, the CISP has signed general agreements with specific bodies in which it intends to create shared strategies for development, the combating of social exclusion, the management of humanitarian crises and the affirmation of the value of international solidarity.
