Mid-Term Review of the ISP2

An internal review was undertaken in 2018 to determine how we are internalising and operationalising our International Strategic Plan.

Action Against Hunger’s International Strategic Plan 2016-2020 sets out the Network’s vision of a world free from hunger and the strategic direction through which we aim to achieve this. It outlines a Theory of Change consisting of 4 main elements: Technical Expertise and Innovation; Powerful and Legitimate Voice; Operational Capacity; and Transfer of our Knowledge and Expertise.

It sets a series of goals and targets related to:

  • Tackling undernutrition (external goals)
  • Investing in staff
  • Research and learning
  • Information and knowledge management
  • Fundraising
  • Partnerships

Currently there is a research consultation underway that will inform the ISP for 2021-2025, and the findings from the mid-term review (MTR) have helped informed this new research.

The MTR highlighted to what extent we internalised and operationalised the ISP through our country strategies, our programmes and our processes for data collection/use.

The study had three main objectives:

  1. To report progress in relation to selected ISP indicators and the themes related to the theory of change
  2. To appraise how the ISP is informing project activities and country strategies
  3. To suggest areas of improvement while considering ISP since its design
