Words kill. Words can be instruments of violence and can be as deadly as a machete, a gun or a bomb....
Are we being impactful?
ICVA’s new strategic period is just kicking in. While we are already busy engaging with our members and preparing our upcoming ICVA Annual Conference, “Translating Commitments into Action”, let’s also take a step back and consider our impact.
Impact is about “marked effect or influence”. And this is what ICVA cares about. In order to achieve our mission of influencing humanitarian policy and practice we need to better define, understand and leverage our impact. This is a core element of our new Strategy, which stresses our efforts to measure and report on performance targets, and regularly commission assessments of our work and impact.
