The strategies in the proposal are broad concepts or approaches to achieve the project objectives. It is a general, undetailed plan of actions designed to achieve a major or overall goal, and it may encompass a long period of time in the project. Or it is a plan chosen to bring about a desired future, such as achievement of a goal or solution to the problem. Strategy is more about a designed set of options other than a fixed plan of what will be achieved. And thus other components in the proposal may change or need to be modified based on the progress and situations, but the strategies will remain unchanged in most of the cases since they are not so specific or practical, for instance, as the Activities section in the proposal.
In a proposal of democracy and good governance, the strategies of your project are needed to be clearly defined. Since the strategies section will show the donors that you have set up a clear and effective plan of how to achieve the goal of your project, it needs to be well designed and related closely to the goal and objectives. Once funded, the strategies will be followed strictly during the periods of time by the project staff and will be used as guidelines for the donors to evaluate the progress and achievement of the project. Examples of strategies are as follows:
