Multi-stakeholder Large Group Program

Since 1999, the founder associates of Koreth Consulting have been working closely with the Government of Delhi in the Bhagidari project (citizen-government partnership) on water, power, sanitation/solid-waste management, safety and security, traffic, environment, education, social welfare, women’s issues, health, sales tax, VAT, senior citizens, and industrial estates. The Bhagidari project has successfully extended its services beyond structured organizations, to bring about city-wide change for good governance and civic service delivery, through large group dynamics involving multiple stake-holders, through fully participatory processes.

• The Bhagidari initiative received the first prize in 2005 for the United Nations Public Service Award (for Transparency, Accountability, and Public Service) out of 215 entries world-wide. This was the first time any project from India had won the U.N. Public Service award.

• The Bhagidari initiative also received a commendable citation for “Innovation, Transparency, Accountability” from the Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management (CAPAM - U.K) in 2002 as a semi-finalist reaching the top 30 projects from all submissions around the world.
