Linkages

From an approach perspective, capital is key (and Sitawi helps to access it), but it's not everything. Social/Environmental impact leaders must know how to obtain it, manage it, invest it in increased effectiveness and efficiency of their initiatives.

From an area-perspective, there is more complementarity of types of organizations/initiatives rather than a hand-over of them from one area to the next

Likewise, a smoother playing field is beneficial to all initiatives and supportive of all approaches.
