Key Principles

Working according to Key Principles reflects our decennia long experience and institutional memory of what works in view of empowering people to overcome poverty. For the near future, our efforts evolve around the following 3 points, internally called ESPs:

  1. Inclusive economic development: poor benefitting from value chains.
  2. Empowering justice for all: people claiming their rights.
  3. Change the systems together: different actors relating and creating towards transformative power.

Gender Equality and the Rights Based Approach are key principles/ operational strategies in all ICCO’s policies and activities. All work done by ICCO has a gender perspective, is geared towards gender equality and is developed and implemented in a rights based approach.
