DAVID GRIMSHAW OF PRACTICAL ACTION ON THE MANIFESTO

David Grimshaw of Practical Action spoke at the launch of the New Manifesto on Tuesday. He's also now written a blogpost on what he would add to it.


This 3D agenda needs to be supplemented by 3V’s: vision, values, and vulnerabilities. The vision is now in the manifesto but could be expanded to say something more about the “how?” and the “why?” Values are an important way of being transparent about the basis for action.

Vulnerabilities of resources, people and markets should be recognised.


As David mentions in his blog, Practical Action have run workshops on the Manifesto in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, which are documented on the Manifesto website.
