Coalitions For Impact



"I think this is an exciting model, an inclusive model and an efficient model"
Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation


We catalyse collaborations and co-creation for sustainable impact by creating Coalitions for Impact. We bring together parties who excel when their unexpected complementarities are united within a collaborative effort.

Coalitions for Impact stakeholders find each other in unexpected formations, unified by a shared mission based on a sustainable business proposition. Motivated by a shared sense of responsibility, coalition partners join forces to enhance societal resilience and local empowerment in the identified focus region.


What is a Coalition for Impact

Common purpose, own interest

Coalition partners find each other in a shared ambition to solve societal challenges. It is their conviction that this can be aligned with their organisational interests.

Win, win, win

A Coalition for Impact creates added value for all stakeholders involved. As one coalition partner put it: ‘ Sometimes you go and speak with the father, but you end up marrying the daughter’.

Innovative finance

A Coalition for Impact strives to create a sustainable business case including innovative impactfinance mechanisms for self-sufficient continuation.

Learning while doing

The Coalitions for Impact are unique. This means there is no blueprint. On a basis of trust and shared intention they explore along the way.

Less talk, more impact

Coalition partners are action heroes. They don’t sit together and talk but are action driven and focused on the realisation of concrete results and impact.

Power of diversity, 1+1=3

A core strength of the coalitions is their multidisciplinary diversity. Centred around a thematic focus, coalition partners bring in their own expertise in a complementary manner.

Local context

Local engagement is a prerequisite to lasting and meaningful results.
