Step 5: Select Solutions
This step involves narrowing the list of possible solutions to a set of solutions that is supported by all local discussion groups. The agreed-upon list may be used as a framework for local action (your action plan) and should be submitted to DPF for possible integration into a national action agenda.
Action Items for Organizers
Organize a joint meeting of all existing discussion groups in your community. Set meeting date, time and location, and notify/invite all discussion groups and the greater community.
Invite each group to share what they have learned so far, the problem statements they developed, and the list of possible solutions that they brainstormed for each problem statement.
Facilitate a process to generate a set of agreed-upon solutions for local action and to be submitted to DPF for possible integration into a national action agenda. Including a set of decision-making criteria in your preferred process is recommended.
Submit framework for action (initial action plan) to DPF.
