Governance

Governance

It is interesting to look at the institutional structure which reflects a strong local nuance. The policy-level body is the Executive Committee. The composition suggests overwhelming presence of members from the street vendors and other marginalized communities whose interest Nidan stands for. On superficial observation, one can see missing versatility but on deeper reflection one can find the members representing strong interest groups. They adequately present the vive and language of their stakeholders. At the program level the core group takes the key decisions regarding the program and activities as well as implementation strategy. The core group includes the program managers.

This structure, at both the levels, reflects representational framework and democratic functioning and is conducive to transparency and shared accountability. This offers adequate space for constructive debate and reflection and thus ensures quality of programs. The structure suggests a strong example of inclusive governance.

Nidan champions informal workers, who proudly call it their own organization. Nidan is a great example of making poor and illiterate primary stakeholders in any process aimed to benefit them. As such for the informal workers, Nidan is not an organization – it is their home.
