Many traditional approaches for addressing a complex issue like poverty, health & climate action have, until recently, emphasized siloed, single-sector approaches that focus on a specific set of achievable strategies. Yet through the success of Collective Impact we can see that it is difficult for a single actor to adequately respond to complex community issues.
This paper profiles Multisolving - a framework emerging from the field of climate action that offers a new approach and an array of helpful tools to those of us wanting to deepen our capacity to harness the power of multi-sector approaches to address our community’s most complex issues.
- Read the case study on TransformTO, who adopted a Multisolving approach to meet aggressive environmental targets while also positively contributing to health, the local economy, and social equity at the same time.
This paper was developed as part of the 2019 Community Change Festival series. Join us in Vancouver, BC from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3 to explore the five interconnected practices needed to solve complex community issues.
