UNNGOF deliberately works with a solution focused approach that is informed by an analysis of the future that citizens want. UNNGOF aims to create solutions in two intervention areas, a) Civil Society Strengthening and b) Influencing Development Policy and practice. Two support functions of Results, Learning and Communication and Finance and Corporate Services complement these key intervention areas.

The context within which NGOs operate today is quite dynamic and calls for agile and more adaptive institutions that can respond to the diverse needs of constituencies they serve. This demand is however met with several institutional, programmatic, leadership and governance deficits. These deficits dissuade the health, legitimacy and relevance of the NGO sector.

Our new strategic outlook, therefore, aspires to build a healthy, legitimate, competent and sustainable NGO sector with the requisite skills and capacity to influence development and governance processes and safeguard citizens’ rights.

Our work will build on previous milestones and lessons to generate new knowledge and models of work and inspire innovation and shared learning.
