New Report Highlights TechnoServe’s Innovative Approaches

January 02, 2014

FSG examines the future of international NGOs and recognizes TechnoServe for its forward-looking approaches to impact.

International nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) face an array of challenges and opportunities, a fragmented funding landscape and a field full of new development actors. The nonprofit consulting firm FSG has released a new report titled “Ahead of the Curve: Insights for the International NGO of the Future,” which examines how these organizations can transform the way they do business to create greater impact.

The report focuses on four approaches: (1) enhancing direct implementation; (2) influencing systems change; (3) harnessing the private sector; and (4) leading multisector action. The authors feature TechnoServe as a forward-looking organization that is adopting these approaches. Project Nurture, a partnership with The Coca-Cola Company and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is highlighted as an example of a program that is creating shared value by increasing smallholder farmers’ incomes and improving the company’s supply chain.
