We actively seek a diversity of partners, not only because we want to deliver the best outcomes, but because we want to learn from different perspectives and new experiences.

Partnership is at the heart of the way we work. Partnership doesn’t just give us the mechanisms for implementing successful policy, it brings the legitimacy and authority needed for continued policy development. This process means that sustained impact can be delivered on economic growth and poverty reduction.

Our partners include all those that we work with to deliver our projects, including our associates, contractors and suppliers, private sector companies including businesses and banking institutions, academics and academic institutions, and charities and international non-governmental organisations.

We strive to foster trust and respect in our relationships with partners, acting collaboratively with honesty and responsibility, and ensuring that a shared dedication to impact is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity and aim to create a culture of openness and accountability in all our work: you can view and download our most recent documents and policies for suppliers here.

Working collaboratively across the globe

Our network of global offices provides the opportunity to build the partnerships that will be sustained over the coming years. The growth of our offices reflects our ambition to increase our collaborative work with stakeholders in countries where we can have the most meaningful impact, developing strong relationships with country governments and partners.

Our unique ability to bring a variety of different development actors together in partnership is also key to seeking new opportunities to ensure our work delivers tangible impact. For instance, our regular partnerships with the private sector – from small, local businesses to large multinationals – allow us to collaborate and innovate in new areas of expertise.

We know that the stronger our collaborations are with other individuals and organisations, across the public and private sectors, the bigger the likely impact of our work. It allows us to deepen our understanding, benefit from diversity of experience, and develop long-term, respected relationships that support knowledge sharing and increase capacity.
