2019-2021 impact study image
Description

This study took stock of the impact ICVA has achieved just over midway through its 2019-2021 Strategy. The key question  investigated is “What has been the impact of ICVA’s efforts in influencing and amplifying NGO perspectives in humanitarian dialogue and policies across each of the four selected focus areas and other issues arising for the period 2019-2020?”

The methodology comprised a document review, interviews with selected stakeholders, and a review of the substantial existing data from ICVA’s recent 2030 consultations with members

2019 case studyimage
Description

5 case studies showing the diversity of ICVA’s ways of working globally and regionally were included in the 2019-2020 mid stratetgy impact study report.

  • Case Study 1 • In its advocacy for the Sahel Region,  understanding was grounded through its regular engagement with HCs and NGOs in the region.
  • Case Study 2 • ICVA enabled the inclusion and participation of local and national NGOs in IASC coordination structures, notably the Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG) and Results Groups (RGs), for the first time after years of advocating for inclusion of national NGOs in the IASC architecture.
  • Case Study 3 • ICVA helped improve NGO understanding of the “8 + 3 Template” by engaging local NGOs and field colleagues about the approach and the implications of the template during the pilot process in Iraq, Myanmar, and Somalia.
  • Case Study 4 • ICVA’s increased engagement in China to facilitate a more diverse and inclusive approach to coordination and has helped to expand the role of Chinese NGOs in international forums and coordination mechanisms.
  • Case Study 5 • Throughout 2020, ICVA worked to support members adjust to the substantial operational and financial challenges created by the pandemic. ICVA was able to do this by successfully integrating Covid-19 response activities into its current strategic focus areas and the ways of working (such as through engagement in the IASC mechanisms).
Strategic priorities 2022-2024

The Strategic priorities 2022-2024 were adopted by members at the 18th General Assembly in May 2021.

These priorities are drawn from the ICVA 2030 strategic vision, providing a more specific focus for the period 2022-2024. On the basis of these priorities, the Secretariat will develop a three-year plan for ICVA Board approval in November 2021. The plan will include specific choices on content of ICVA’s work, enabling strategies, the resource planning and requirements and a set of preformance indicators.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
