The 2012-16 business plan was the last of its kind. It will be replaced by a broad strategic framework and theory of change.

2016 marked the end of our business plan 2012-16 and we ended it with success and consolidation of the commitments we set out in 2012. We launched a new toolkit section on our website bringing together all our experiences in one single repository. It includes systems strengthening tools which support the work for our flagship initiative Agenda for Change. We established a global hub for the Agenda for Change partnership, and strengthened our hub activities in Uganda and Honduras.

We started with the Watershed - empowering citizens programme in 2016, which is about strengthening the capacity of civil society organisations to interact with governments and service providers and to hold them to account.

In 2016 we brought our advisory service, IRC Consult, fully in-house to The Hague after a two-year pilot with Aguaconsult. IRC Consult has become a key tool in expanding our network of associate consultants and partners, and the reach of our concepts and tools beyond our focus countries.

Our country offices have been working hard with their governments to improve the WASH situation in-country. Relationships were fostered both nationally and in districts to bring about change. 

The Annual Report 2016 gives a brief overview of our achievements, but more detailed information is available in our Monitoring Report and 2016 Annual Accounts.
