The annual report takes stock of what we did in 2012-13, highlighting what we have achieved – from the great event of Fair Ideas at Rio+20 in July 2012 and the international networks we have been part of, to the meetings of only a few people, but all with valuable local insights to contribute to problem solving or making a change.
This past year has shown us even more clearly that small amounts of funding to support local action can have remarkable results. These funds can give poor people a more effective voice, allowing them to play a stronger part in negotiations at all levels. We will take this knowledge, plus the learning and experiences we have shared with partners, into 2013/14 – the last in our current five-year strategic period.

Knowledge is the greatest tool for human progress but it won’t suffice – we also need leadership and determination to work together
