New overarching strategy

During the pandemic, Digni has developed a new strategy. “Digni 2030 – Statement of Principles” was adopted by the Supervisory Board on 29 April.

– We have had an inclusive process with the member organisations. As part of the global church’s call to diakonia, we will work through the member organizations and their partners to ensure that no one is left behind. Digni will contribute to achieve the sustainability goals by 2030, says Stephanie Dietrich, Chair of the Digni board.

– A solid strategy is an important foundation for the work with a new five-year strategic action plan and a new application to Norad. Digni and our members have a large network of local churches and civil society actors, and we know the importance of having a cultural understanding to be able to work for long-term development in the partner countries. Our expertise in religion and development makes an important contribution to Norwegian development cooperation, says Hjalmar Bø, Digni’s Secretary General.
