As part of our Strategic Development Action Plan for the next 5 years (2019 – 2024), we will work with our teams in key countries to establish subsidiaries in targeted countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, South and Latin America, Central America, the Caribbeans, and the Pacific Island countries. The overall goal of these subsidiaries is to encourage and promote national ownership of the works we seek to achieve in line with the UN SDGs. We believe that local or national ownership of the development process promotes and enhances sustainable development, encourages greater activism, minimizes the brain-drain syndrome, and significantly reduces the reliance on expatriates for provision and delivery technical and non-technical services. We also believe that through national ownership fitted with technical staff, development funds will be directed to the people who really need it and for whom actions are designed to improve their livelihoods.
