In 2017, we launched a five-year strategy, which aimed to tackle the key development challenges facing countries in Africa and South Asia. A lot has changed since then – the pandemic has pushed hundreds of millions into extreme poverty, climate change has become the climate emergency, and there is greater understanding of the systemic injustices that hold people back.
This week, we launched our 2022-2026 strategy, which aims to address these emerging challenges and opportunities. It sets out three clear strategic objectives – to invest in productive, sustainable and inclusive development.
And in this podcast episode, we take a deeper dive into what all this means. We explore our impact objectives in more detail, discuss the lessons learnt since 2017 and understand how we will implement the strategy in the countries where we invest.
