Federations now realize that is is no longer possible to do business as usual in the allocation of funds. Conditions and the growing fiscal stringency requires new approaches, more thinking and planning and an awareness of the need to be less reactive and more assertive.

Creative survival must be converted from an abstraction to concrete programs.
