2009 Annual Report: Introduction

Growing Our Influence Through Effective Partnerships

The turbulent world economy has placed huge demands on the InterAction coalition as a leader in the wider development community. Our unique ability to partner across all sectors in pursuit of people-centered and effective solutions to interlocking challenges—including food security, climate change and adaptation, gender equality and disaster relief—continues to heighten our influence among decision-makers on the national stage and globally, and strengthens our collective efforts to ensure that the eradication of poverty is the basis for the future direction of development assistance and policy.
