These tips are part of a series of tips and resources to support context-driven adaptation in programming. For other resources, see the public version of the Context-Driven Adaptation Collection or the internal staff version.

While immediate programming benefits when it is implemented in a way that observes and adjusts to shifts in context - particularly incentive structures and power dynamics - over the long term, effective development programming must empower local actors to more routinely implement their own efforts in similar ways. This can be thought of as developing the capacity of local actors to design and manage context-driven, adaptive programming, or to think and work politically (TWP) . This document is an effort to compile some good practices in 1 supporting local capacity to TWP.
