Pact applies an integrated and systemic approach in addressing root problems to measurably transform lives, through the combination of the following interventions: health, livelihoods, environment and resilience building, capacity development, governance and markets.
Health - Pact is giving people better access to vital health and social services â€” from HIV and AIDS care and prevention to protections for vulnerable children â€” and ensuring local institutions and systems can sustain improvements long after Pact is gone.
Livelihoods - Pact helps people with limited livelihood choices earn a dignified living and be income-secure. Often tightly linked to our efforts in health, natural resource management, governance, and markets, our livelihoods work gives those who are poor the tools, knowledge, and access to credit to enable them to truly own their future.
Environment and resilience building- Pact works with local organizations and governments to help communities sustainably benefit from the natural resources around them, from forests and water to cropland and mineral deposits. We work to forge effective systems for natural resource management and build responsible nature-based enterprises.
Capacity development - Pact believes that local organizations are best suited to solve local problems - and that making them stronger is the best way to create meaningful, lasting impact beyond our presence. Our capacity development model works from assessment to training and mentorship to track improvement.
Governance - Pact enables people to exercise their voice by fostering national, regional, and local governance that's inclusive, transparent, and accountable. Our efforts to create environments that enable people to exercise their voice and take ownership of their future cut across all the work we do.
Markets - Pact strengthens local economies by assessing markets and transforming them into a force for development. Working with civil society organizations, government, and other stakeholders, we foster markets that are based on safe, non-exploitative practices and the sustainable use of natural resources, particularly in the mining and forestry sectors.
