Our Strategy

Responding to humanitarian crises, building resilience and inclusion

Although remarkable advances have been in made in the field of humanitarian relief, conflict, instability, poor governance and climate change mean crises have become increasingly complex and protracted. Never has GOAL's work been more relevant. Never have the needs of vulnerable people been more pressing.

Growing and intensifying challenges

There are 70.8 million displaced people in the world, 25.9 million of whom are refugees. Numbers continue to grow. The complexity of our working environment is changing rapidly, but GOAL remains resolute in its desire to carrying out life-changing work.

The new dynamic

GOAL's current strategy (2019-2021) puts greater emphasis on the way we carry out our work - recognising an urgent need to sharpen our adaptiveness in emergency response, bolster civil society institutions and engage new partners to develop transcendent solutions.

Even today, 800 million people across the world do not have the food they need. 

Food poverty is increasing, with the situation fuelled by rapid population growth, increased conflict, displacement and climate change. GOAL is focused on innovative and sustainable ways to achieve food and nutrition security for the most vulnerable.

The informal economy accounts for more than half of the global workforce.

GOAL works in areas of extreme poverty and inequality, where livelihoods are often made through self-employment, micro or small businesses. Our team is helping to make sure that these people are given the chance to build strong and sustainable livelihoods.

The world is increasingly connected. Action is no longer limited by traditional boundaries or borders.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for us all; addressing poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

GOAL links its Global Citizenship programme with the SDGs and is helping people by fostering global citizenship, GOAL is helping people understand that how we live and act can, and does, make a difference.
