"We marked 2022 as the beginning of doing things differently at scale with an eye towards greater impact and sustainability. Our 'Big Tent' approach is co-creating solutions in partnership with governments and like-minded stakeholders to transform human capital in member countries, with a stronger emphasis on women and youth. We are also enhancing our results focus to become a more agile, data-driven and digitally-enabled organization, with the Lives and Livelihoods Fund leading the way with its Adaptive Results Based Management (aRBM) model that will help us decode success in a systematic and participatory manner. "

"2022 will be remembered as the year of surreal and unparalleled economic challenges. While the year alone has magnified pre-existing economic disparities, forecasting lower growth rates and sharp decrease in poverty threshold, I am pleased to note that the Lives and Livelihoods Fund is continuing to provide targeted support to help cushion the impact on the most vulnerable countries. Together with our partners, the Fund is working towards long-term growth by fostering economic diversification at the household level, bolstering gender mainstreaming in economic activity, and deliberately strategizing to increase multilateral climate action."


Over 6 years, the scale of the resources we have mobilized through diverse life-saving and livelihoods development projects is massive. Every intervention has reinforced a shared sense of purpose, a clear view of impact, a learning mindset, and a path towards lasting change.
