Intercultural projects SUSTAINABILITY is probably one of the biggest challenges for Intercultural Managers. SUSTAINABILITY is defined as the project capacity to continue its activities indefinitely. That is why Environmental SUSTAINABILITY (cf. Sustainable Development), is defined as the ability to maintain rates of renewable resources harvest. In simple words, a project is SUSTAINABLE if, and only if, it guarantees continuous flow of activities as long as necessary. Large number of successful projects implemented experience difficulties with SUSTAINABILITY. Several factors are responsible for SUSTAINABILITY. Some are within the control of the project manager, such as EVALUATION, DOCUMENTATION and CONSOLIDATION (cf. Policy Making). Since there couldn’t be a complete IPM Process without SUSTAINABILITY, in this last module, we’ll explore how to gain SUSTAINABILITY in order to guarantee that users/students IPM Process will deliver concrete and desirable results for years to come.
