Technical Strategy 2020

The overall purpose of this strategy is to outline ways in which Action Against Hunger can work that maximizes and optimizes our entire organisational technical capacity.

The strategy redefines our technical remit. Rather than a departmental responsibility, Action Against Hunger’s technical work is a mainstream feature of the organisation as a whole. Therefore, the strategy does not belong only to the Technical Department or the International Management Group (IMG); it is a cross-cutting strategy for all staff across Action Against Hunger.

At the heart of this vision is a recognition that knowledge – how it is generated, managed, exchanged, and disseminated – will be critical to our success in the next five years. The effective and systematic management and use of knowledge will inform analysis and decisionmaking
which in turn will lead to the implementation of informed, relevant and innovative actions. Knowledge is what will ensure that Action Against Hungers actions are relevant, and knowledge will provide the guidance on when why and how to generate new ideas and models.

The role of the Technical Departments in this context is to become enablers in the different processes, guiding and supporting them as necessary across the organisation. This strategy provides a framework for how this support can and should be provided.
