GOVERNANCE AND DEVOLUTION

At Interthoughts Consulting, we aggressively engage indevolution and governance as to build the capacity of County governments, NGOs, and their community leaders to  address local development problems. We help county governments by training staff; developing policies and  institutional frameworks; develop strategic plans and also manage their communication needs and media relations. We  have worked with organizations, both local and international on governance, devolution and democracy projects and have also helped organizations to create an enabling environment for effective governance, resulting in linkages between  government, private business and civil society at national,  regional and local levels.

Our methodology is to engage our partners in order to  establish legal frameworks to protect and promote citizen participation, improve institutional and financial viability of  county governments, enhance the free flow of information,  and strengthen democratic political culture. Through our  expertise in, policy formulation, networking, coalition building, and advocacy, grassroots mobilization, Interthoughts  Consulting has been able to enlist numerous stakeholders and enabled them to take on a larger role in the governance of  the society.

Within the larger Democracy and Governance field, we  pursues much of this mission through key sector players. Civil society organizations around our communities have  immensely benefited from our proven methodologies, tools,  and training modules as they advance critical elements of a  vibrant civil society. Interthoughts work in the governance  sector promotes citizen participation in holding governments  accountable, and assists government officials in developing transparent and accountable governance practices.

At Interthoughts, we use two formulation methodologies:

  • Effective formulation means that the policy we proposed is  regarded as a valid, efficient, and implementable solution to the issue at hand. Our Policy analysts help in identifying effective, and easy to implement policies. This is the analytical phase of  policy formulation.
  • Acceptable formulation means that we propose cause of  action that is likely to be authorized by the legitimate decision  makers, usually through in a bargaining process. That is, it  must be majority-building politically feasible. This is the  political phase of policy formulation.

The tidy division of labor incorporates our distinct roles in  professional policy analysis; working both inside and outside  government, we have formulated kits of analytical tools that  helps decision makers works easier We believe that our services bring judgment, wisdom, and accountability to policy formulation.
