Local know-how for lasting solutions

At SNV, we believe that no one should live in poverty. Driven by the Sustainable Development Goals, we dedicate our work to a society in which every individual is free to pursue his/her own sustainable development.

Our work focuses on increasing people’s incomes and access to basic services in agriculture, energy, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Our projects directly benefit millions of people (5 M in 2020) and drive systems change by strengthening institutions and kickstarting markets. By connecting our global expertise with longstanding in-country presence, we help realise locally-owned solutions. And we do so in around 24 countries worldwide.
