Hivos sees entrepreneurial men and women in rural areas as a lever for sustainable change: with a more even playing field and focused support, potential rural entrepreneurs can turn their production into viable businesses and be important actors in societal transformation towards a more sustainable and equitable economy at a local and global level. This improves not only their position but that of rural communities and benefits the global community. GE strongly believes in green and inclusive development. Our approach is based on insights and lessons learned from our earlier work and that of others. We are aware that our insights and the assumptions are incomplete and are likely to change in the future as knowledge evolves.

Our world is changing quickly and profoundly. Rich and poor – regardless of where they live – are faced with increasingly ‘thick’ problems and social change is more politicized and contested than ever before. And yet, most international development NGOs (INGOs) keep offering ‘thin’ solutions to these problems. Solutions geared to measurable material success. Solutions that are aimed at increasing participation in unsustainable economies and polities.
