ETC International

For ETC modern international development cooperation means working in innovative ways on our themes in both the South and North. We work as equal international partners on local solutions. We put people’s own culture, knowledge and learning first, so they can take responsibility for their own future. We call this ‘civic driven change’.

ETC devotes about half of its resources to support change through capacity development in civil society, governmental institutions and the private sector. This way ETC is supporting a country’s own development of food security, water and energy supply, health care and education. Partners are responsible for direct poverty alleviation. Our involvement in this is limited to projects aimed at innovation and learning. Capacity development and policy influencing often takes place within international collaborative networks, where all participants learn from each other's experiences.
