A year in review
Message from the CEO
As you will read in this report, the work we are doing to strengthen inclusive agricultural value chains, increase access to clean water and sanitation, and enable innovative approaches to both climate change adaption and mitigation, is extensive and increasingly vital if we are to continue to make progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Part of our ability to navigate the uncertainty resulting from the pandemic and to continue contributing as much positive impact as possible stems from our focus, built around our core areas of competence in relation to agriculture, energy, and water and sanitation. Highlights from our work in these areas are included in this report.
