IIED strategy: A global presence

Article, 12 June 2014

Three translations of the new strategy of the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) for the period 2014-2019 are now available to download.

Over the next five years, IIED will build on our landmark work with partners on each of four research themes: climate change, natural resources, human settlements and sustainable markets. 

Our long-term strategic engagement with processes and people aims to redress power imbalances, tackle inequalities and create fairer access to resources and services.

Launched in April, IIED's strategy document Engaging for Change: IIED Strategy 2014-2019 is now also available in French, Spanish and Chinese.

In the new strategy, we hold fast to our central theory of change — that solutions must come from the bottom up, grounded in local context, local evidence and owned and driven by local people — but that local action can and must shape the global policy too.

"We have always combined research and action, testing out big new ideas in practice, to assess whether and how they can achieve their promises," said IIED director Dr Camilla Toulmin.

"For the next five years, we plan to focus even more on practical engagement, to find, test and deliver solutions to help achieve our vision of a fair world in which all people can enjoy peace and prosperity while respecting environmental limits."
