IIED Board response to the External Review recommendations October 2012
As the Board of IIED, we greatly welcome the report from the External Review Team. It is valuable to be reviewed by people who know and understand the environment in which we operate, and the kind of institutional and political space we occupy. Their views on the relevance of the organisation’s current strategy and priorities are much appreciated, and their assessment of IIED’s strengths and weaknesses are well-judged. It is good to get recognition from the External Review Team (ERT) of the considerable progress made in institutional systems and strategic development since the last review 2006-07. IIED management and board accept and will implement the large majority of recommendations stemming from the current review.
