An Exit Strategy is a partnership's plan describing how and when the partners intend to responsibly end their support while ensuring that achievement of the project goals is not jeopardised and that progress towards these goals will continue into the future. Exit strategies, when planned with partners in advance, ensure better project outcomes and encourage commitment to sustainable results.
