Bridging the Gap between Member States and the UNESCAP Secretariat, Using Trust-building Mechanisms

Esmaeil Tekyeh Sadat


The Purpose of this study is to develop a trust-building mechanism for ordering collaborative relations among key stakeholders and demonstrate its importance as a tool for bridging the gap between member states and the UNESCAP Secretariat. The researcher used qualitative methodology and action research to emulate change. The results of this study show that the trust-building impacted the collaborative roles and responsibilities of the key stakeholders in the organization. Indeed, the higher the collaborative roles and responsibilities, the more instrumental the tool. However, while some improvement in respect to the roles and responsibilities of ACPR were noted, the analysis shows that further action is required for increasing collaborative roles and responsibilities in subsidiary committees.
