Collective actions: Developing collaborative and collective action solutions   

Societies often grapple with challenges that need multi-party stakeholders to find a solution. The term "collective action problem" describes the situation in which multiple individuals would all benefit from a certain action, i.e. curbing corruption, but has an associated cost making it implausible that any individual can or will undertake and solve it alone. The ideal solution is then to undertake this as a collective action, thereby holding each other accountable and sharing the costs (financial as well as social). Scanteam helps actors identify collective actions and set up suitable multi-stakeholder structures to solve challenges.
