Begin this assignment by reviewing the Riverbend City Collaboration
Evaluation Scoring Guide.
The Riverbend City organization Fuerza y Unidad has established its mission
to serve citizens struggling with the aftereffects of a toxic spill, as well as
the inability of the city to effectively respond to the needs of the Latino
population. Some of the Latino population have relatives living in Canexico,
which is just across the international border. The toxic spill from Riverbend
City is also adversely affecting the ground water, soil, and air in Canexico.
Fuerza y Unidad wants to help the people of Canexico, and must decide how it
can work with an organization, Salvar a la Gente, that is already based there.
The two organizations were established differently, so collaboration across an
international border, combined with the initial differences, may require the
formation of an NGO.
Drawing on your readings, discussions, and Riverbend City missions, describe,
critique, and evaluate the efforts of Fuerza y Unidad and Salvar a la Gente, to
formally collaborate, keeping in mind these factors:
Present your evaluation and analysis in a 2,000-word paper that incorporates

negative consequences of applying organizational policy and managerial decisions,
as well as the opportunities that may exist between the organizations (and
other organizations that may be linked to Fuerza y Unidad) with an explanation
as to how the Latino organizations may or may not benefit. In addition,
consider the range of potential relationships and partnerships (formal and
informal) that might benefit the chosen organization. Offer recommendations to
Fuerza y Unidad for alternative strategies and approaches or support the Fuerza
y Unidad approach. Provide substantive support for your recommendations. Using
APA standards, include citations and references to support your critique and
