One of the key principles of an adviser is to respect local ownership. You can ensure local ownership by:
1. Letting your counterpart design and implement a project entirely by him/herself.
2. Seeking approval from your counterpart and implementing the project along with him/her.
3. Have your counterpart take the lead in designing and implementing a project but provide support and advise when requested by your counterpart.
4. Taking the lead in designing and implementing the project but ensuring that your counterpart is well trained to be able to carry out the same in the future.
