CONCORD’s Multi-Annual Strategy Update

Following the strategy session at this year’s General Assembly, we have gathered a wide range of foundation documents which will provide the groundwork for our new Multiannual Strategy 2016-2022: Over the summer, the enlarged Strategy Taskforce will consult these documents in preparation for the first of a series of strategy drafting sessions due to take place in the first week of September.

At the upcoming 2nd semester event, 11-12 December, the Strategy Task Force will present its strategy proposals for your consideration, insights and opinion.  

Several other key processes will be running alongside the drafting of the strategy: 
•    CONCORD’s future project work
•    CONCORD’s financing for development work
•    Interviews with key external partners for their input on CONCORD’s strategy
•    Two Adhoc strategy groups on the financing and governance of the strategy
