Abstract: This policy document sets out SNV’s course of action for 2007-2015. It outlines a corporate vision of SNV’s role and place in reducing poverty and improving governance. It focuses on who we are, what we do, how we relate to others, and how we will go about developing our relations and way of working. The 7 core elements of the new strategy are: (1) orientation of SNV’s activities on impact in two areas, basic services and income, production & employment, and focus on specific targets within these in the context of national development priorities; (2) strong engagement with local capacity builders, as they are essential to the sustainability of poverty reduction efforts and success; (3) maintenance of SNV’s advisory services as its core business, but as these are insufficient to help achieve impact on their own, they will be complemented with additional ‘delivery channels’; (4) embracement of ‘governance for empowerment’ as a concept and body of expertise that is critical across all our work; (5) the view that SNV’s clients are part of broader actor constellations and help strengthen micro-macro linkages; (6) substantial diversification of SNV’s partnerships and resources to leverage its expertise for increased impact; and (7) a stronger drive for quality in staff, work processes, and result measurement.
