Delivering change: IIED annual review 2019
IIED's 2019 annual review summarises the institute's activities during the year.
While our 2019-2024 strategy Make Change Happen identified where we can make a difference to five global challenges that we pinpointed for action – climate change, growing inequality, accelerating loss of the world’s precious biodiversity, preserving the health of the oceans, and supporting inclusive urbanisation in the poorest countries – this annual review shows how we delivered against these actions and sought to achieve our mission throughout 2019.
From finding ways to channel climate finance to rural communities in Kenya; to documenting health and climate risks for informal urban workers in India and Zimbabwe; to working to grow networks to support green, social enterprises; to winning awards for our work conceptualising sustainable development evaluation – everything IIED achieved in 2019 was done in partnership.
In his introduction to the report, IIED director Andrew Norton says: "This collection of stories shows how, with the right approaches, IIED and partners are making a positive difference to those on the frontline of complex and interlinking global crises.”
