Our bold ambition to 2030 builds on 50 years’ experience of bringing communities and experts together to find practical, lasting solutions that help people lift themselves out of poverty while safeguarding the environment. Our three year plan reflects how we will start this journey at country, regional and global levels. We believe that people are more likely to adopt a new idea or a new technology if they see it working for themselves, or learn about it from a trusted source. By 2020 we will work directly with 7.5m people across Asia, Latin America and Africa, to find and demonstrate technologies that can improve their lives. We believe that no organisation alone can bring about the changes needed to benefit everyone. To achieve our ambition, we will do even more to engage and inspire practitioners, policy-makers, markets, funders and communities to work together, so our work can impact the lives of far more people than we can reach directly. 2017-2020 strategic plan From 2017 – 2020 we will continue to focus on improved access to: Energy Sustainable agriculture Disaster risk reduction Urban water, sanitation and waste services
