@Kay Farmer and @Katie Heffner : perhaps that the above is of interest to you? Which term do you generally use or recommend to use in this context?
I have been following this discussion here and elsewhere. ASAP is based on on a formalised partnership system so uses the term 'partners' and does not use the term beneficiaries. I have seen some organisations use the term 'partner' more loosely. Also some organisations use 'stakeholder' but again there I know there are problems with that word as well. I also recently listened to a discussion about moving away from the term 'in the field' and this is also included in the BONDF document https://www.bond.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Bond_Decoloinising-and-depoliticising_updated-2022.pdf
Thank you so much for sharing this opportunity @Kay Farmer. Feel free to add an appropriate banner photo as it may draw more members attention to the post!
many thanks, just added our logo
Great example about the imperative need to connect meaningfully with the people who are inextricably interlinked to safeguarding natural resources. It would be interesting to hear the rest of Pedro's story
