Organisation activities

We act as a connector, a collaborator, a catalyst and an advocate for change. We work alongside communities to provide rapid relief in crisis, manage the effects of conflict and climate change, and create lasting solutions. Our Global Strategy, Pathway to Possibility, reflects the organisations ambition to meet the basic needs of communities affected by conflict and climate change, and to achieve lasting, transformational change at scale. We takes a resilience approach to meet its four strategic outcomes: Food Security, Peace & Good Governance, Water Security & Economic Opportunities. Our five reinforcing practices are foundational to driving greater and more sustained impact for and with those affected by crisis; we are climate smart, evidence driven, innovative and creative, locally led and safe, diverse and inclusive. Alignment, Accountability, and Allocation of resources, our 3As, enable us to refine our focus, make trade-offs, and realize our goals.
