We compile data at the local and national levels that summarize the outcomes of our worldwide programming in the areas of health, livelihoods, environment, capacity development, governance, responsible mining, energy and more.
Building local promise around the world
Pact works to transform lives in ways that are lasting and measurable. These are the main indicators by which we gauge our progress. They're published annually in our Measuring Pact’s Mission report, below. We also believe that no single measure stands alone. Our integrated approach combines interventions and focuses on systemic change to build an environment for lasting success.
Achieving good health and well-being requires healthy behaviors and quality services that reach all ages. Pact is at the forefront of expanding the role of communities and civil society in working to improve person-centered health and social services with government agencies and private and faith-based service providers. We work with national and local partners to improve inclusive and equitable access to services that deliver what communities need from strengthened public health systems. Our sustainable, community-led HIV and health programming responds to the prevention and care needs of marginalized groups. We also develop the capacity of local partners to address barriers that sideline these at-risk populations. Community-based solutions – integrated with livelihoods and good governance approaches – facilitate local response and resilience to shocks and stresses such as the Covid-19 pandemic.
Economic resilience and empowerment are at the core of people’s ability to own their future, especially for women, youth and disadvantaged groups who tend to be most excluded from traditional market systems. Pact works hand in hand with the communities we serve to promote access to finance, support micro and small enterprise development, and realize labor rights. By enhancing access to livelihoods knowledge, skills and resources at the community level and engaging with governments, private-sector actors and local organizations to create economic opportunity, we support the development of sustainable, resilient and inclusive livelihoods.
To make lasting change for the next generation, communities must have the skills, resources and opportunities to responsibly benefit from the natural resources around them, from fish to forests to agricultural products, and to adapt to climate change. In partnership with local communities, governments, local organizations and the private sector, we foster sustainability in agriculture and forestry supply chains; strengthen local capacity and effective community-based natural resource management governance systems; and help people develop alternative and sustainable climate-resilient, nature-based enterprises.
Sustainable communities and systems must become self-reliant. Pact views capacity development as an asset-based, inclusive process, approach and outcome. Capacity development must be intentional, go beyond knowledge and skills transfer, rely on co-creation and co-implementation, incorporate innovative technologies in creative ways and agilely work within complex, adaptive systems. Pact’s capacity development work is holistic and intersects all of our programming to best meet the needs of local actors, ensuring their leadership of the process.
Effective, responsive and inclusive governance systems are fundamental building blocks to local development. Pact partners with civil society, media and governments to protect and expand civic space and broaden participation in local decision making. We work with peace activists to strengthen local institutions for fostering stability and positive social dialogue to address intra- and inter-communal conflict, including across national borders. We strengthen diverse networks of civic and social actors—including community groups, national civil society organizations, private sector and government agencies—to advance policies and collective action that positively impact local communities.
Using markets as a positive force for development means communities have the systems and opportunities they need to achieve the change they desire. Pact’s mining program brings together government, industry and miners — women and men — to make artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) safer, formalized, more productive and resilient, and to address challenges such as child labor in mining. Pact’s efforts are helping to reveal and make the most of ASM’s contributions to development in communities around the globe and deliver a just green energy transition built on responsible mining practices
Pact is working toward a future where all people enjoy the benefits of modern energy. We collaborate with governments, companies, investors and other civil society organizations to connect supply and demand for energy, remove market distortions and end energy poverty.
