IMPACT Initiatives is a leading Geneva based think and do tank, created in 2010 and firstly operationalized in 2012.
IMPACT is a member of the ACTED Group.
Through its action, IMPACT aims at shaping practices and influencing policies in humanitarian and development settings, in order to positively impact the lives of people and their communities. We do so by co-constructing and promoting knowledge, tools, and practices which enable better decision-making by key aid stakeholders. In all our work, we promote the use of settlement approaches as a catalyst for more effective aid action. We believe that by understanding settlements through the lens of community dynamics, governance structures and socio-economic relationships, we can impact lives of people, improve communities’ development pathways and contribute to a fairer world.
IMPACT’s teams implement assessment, monitoring, evaluation, and organizational capacity-building programmes in direct partnership with aid actors or through its inter-agency initiatives, REACH and Agora. IMPACT’s global team, based in Geneva, is complemented by an established presence in over 15 countries in Africa, Eastern Europe, Middle East and North Africa, South-East and Central Asia.
IMPACT has a leading expertise in assessment, monitoring, evaluation and organizational capacity building, which it applies in its own activities and in its interagency initiatives, REACH and AGORA.
