Our work

We believe that by sharing our specialist expertise in AgricultureRenewable Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene, we can contribute to solving some of the most urgent development challenges facing the world today.

Our team of over 1,000 professionals from different nationalities works in many of the poorest countries worldwide to empower local people to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own sustainable development.

By focusing on three key roles, in combination with our local presence, we guarantee maximum effectiveness, scale and sustainability of our work: 

  • Advisory services - through which we create solutions with local impact
  • Knowledge networking - which expands knowledge bases for sustainable poverty reduction
  • Evidence-based advocacy - which improves the enabling environment

We recognise that sustained poverty reduction requires people living in poverty to both contribute to and benefit from growth while having access to quality basic services. With this in mind, our work focuses on enabling the four factors we have learnt are essential for successful development: inclusion, local ownership, contextualised solutions, and systemic change.
