Best Practices Database?
The idea of creating CMAO Best Practices
Database is based on the observation that carefully
documented case histories can provide excellent guidelines
for policy making and planning of new projects. The goal
of a database on Best Practices is to present and promote
creative, successful and sustainable solutions to social
problems arising from poverty and social exclusion in
order to build a bridge between empirical solutions,
research and policy.
Best Practices, in the CMAO Database, are model projects or
policies aimed at improving the quality of life of
individuals or groups suffering from poverty or social
exclusion. They are typically based on the cooperation
between national or local authorities, non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) and local communities, the private
sector, and academic communities. They include a variety of
activities in all parts of the world.
