Resource and energy challenges
Working hard on a dedicated advocacy effort can be exhausting for individuals involved – doing it in a coalition can be even more exhausting. So it’s not unusual for some individuals to feel burnt out or in need of new challenges once an important milestone has been reached. Some member organisations of a coalition will begin to shift their focus of activity and resources away from efforts that are seen to have run their course (even if others recognise that much is still to be done). Some donors may also start to shift funding away from a coalition once it has met its initial objectives.
