A large number of local institutions, directly
or indirectly, contribute to the development of the small and micro
enterprises. The success of the programme, hence, rests on its ability
to establish alliances with a diverse range of local institutions
and industries so as to positively influence the implementation
of the programme.
Recognizing that the social milieu,
in which the technologies are
employed, is an important factor to
be considered for both development and dissemination, COSMILE has
worked ceaselessly to address relevant social issues.
CoSMiLE has worked in areas as diverse as developing
SHGs (self help groups), bringing owners and workers onto a common
discussion platform, providing inputs on health and safety for workers,
working with industry associations for strengthening them, etc.
A large number of participants at various levels
(national, regional, and cluster) are involved in numerous initiatives
and projects on small and micro enterprises. The effectiveness of
ongoing interventions can be greatly enhanced through knowledge
sharing. Hence, the programme is developing physical or virtual
platforms at different levels for exchanging information and experience
among various participants, including manufacturers of thermal gasifiers.
Multi-stakeholder dialoguing platforms will be created on various
issues such as technology, policy, and social sensitivity.
Successful implementation of the various initiatives
depends to a large extent on the capacity and role of partner organizations/individuals.
Hence, capacity building of partners and providing technical back-up
or support to them will be one of the major activities under the
programme. Most of the capacity building activities are built around
sharing of knowledge and experiences amongst CoSMiLE partners. These
learning activities are carried out with a collaborative spirit.
There have been numerous partners in the CoSMiLE
programme in the area of Human and Institutional Developmen.
