dc.description.abstractGlobally, there is a growing popularity among local governments to apply Cross-Sector Social Partnerships (CSSP) to implement Sustainable Community Plans (SCPs). The aim of this study is to understand the link between the distribution of resources and plan outcomes, and to examine the roles of five plan and structure variables (i.e., oversight by government; collaborative oversight; partner engagement mechanism; number of partners; and community-wide actions) as mediators and moderators. A quantitative method has been used to analyze the data collected from 106 communities worldwide. The main findings of this study indicate the importance of contributed resources (internal, partnership structural, community-wide) on the implementation of SCPs. The results also highlight the critical role community-wide actions play in mediating the relationships, and the significance of collaborative oversight, partner engagement mechanism, and number of partners have in mediating the relationship.en
