Abstract: An overview is presented of SNV’s development results, the ways it works, as well as its strategic directions for the 2007-2010 period. Since starting up in Nepal in 1980, SNV’s presence has expanded to Bhutan (1988), Vietnam (1995), Laos (2003), Cambodia (2005), and Bangladesh (2005). Currently, our advisers are working hand-in-hand with 255 clients, 30% of whom are local capacity building organizations, to strengthen their capacities for poverty reduction. At the end of 2009, SNV Asia expects to have, through its clients, an outreach of some 4 million people (about 900,000 households) that will benefit from impact in employment, increased income, food security, access to renewable energy and related time saving devices, and access to water, sanitation and improved hygiene. The following sections outline the strategies which will drive its activities in the five sectors in which SNV works in Asia: renewable energy; water, sanitation and hygiene; smallholder cash crops; pro-poor sustainable tourism; and, forest products.
