Fri PAD's strategic thrust is to integrate institution, infrastructure, resource generation, local capacity and peaceful change in order to achieve sustainable development. In building sustainable local institutions, the concept of co-production is followed wherein, the users are involved in entire program-cycle like planning, design, implementation, including cost benefit sharing and operation and maintenance. It believes that such participatory approach can increase user's contribution, reduce the cost and increase efficiency in program implementation. Local capacity is enhanced to enable them to manage the natural resources for harnessing the full potential of these resources for enhanced livelihood. This is done through training, skill transfer and exchange visits for participating households and the executives of the groups and institutions.
