Morgan, P. 2005. Organising for large-scale system change: the environmental action (ENACT) programme, Jamaica. A case study for the project 'capacity, change and performance'. (Discussion Paper 57J). Maastricht: ECDPM.
A case study prepared for the project ‘Capacity, Change and Performance’ organised by ECDPM.
This case study looks at the experience of the Environmental Action (ENACT) programme, a collaboration between the government of Jamaica and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). ENACT’s mandate was to work with Jamaican organisations in the public, private and non-profit sectors to improve their capabilities to identify and solve national environmental problems. The design of the ENACT programme began in 1990 but activities in the field only got under way with the assignment of a Canadian adviser in 1994. It took until 1999 to put in place all the pieces needed to make ENACT into a high-performing support unit.
