SNV is present on the ground in 38 countries across three regions globally:
Our Headquarters is in The Hague, the Netherlands.
We also have a partnership office in Washington DC. Staff here work to establish partnerships with other multi-lateral organisations, corporations, foundations, universities, social investors and others to increase the impact of our work.
SNV is led by a Managing Board, made up of our Chief Executive, the Managing Director for Global Support Services and our Managing Directors for Agriculture, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene and Renewable Energy.
SNV's work is monitored by the SNV Supervisory Board, who ensure we are carrying out our mission – to alleviate poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries – in the most effective and efficient way possible.
Our International Advisory Board helps expand the scale, impact and visibility of our work globally.
SNV’s advisors are leading experts in their fields, with in-depth understanding of the local contexts in which we work. Our advisors in the field come from a variety of cultural and technical backgrounds, and over 80 per cent are nationals of the countries where we operate. We currently employ over 1,000 professionals in close to 100 offices around the world.
