DIB is a Danish development organization that works with local organizations around the world to make a difference for people whose quality of life is threatened by inequality, poverty and climate change.
Capacity building is the cornerstone of DIB's strong collaboration with local partner organizations, which we support in developing and implementing innovative development projects. Common to our current projects is that they address climate and environmental challenges and involve poor and marginalized communities as co-creators of sustainable development and a better future for themselves.
… For example, Nepalese farmers with simple technology succeed in significantly increasing their yield as in the project Enhancing Rural Livelihoods project. While Bolivian children in the Aprender Jugandoproject, play to understand how to live in harmony with the earth's ecosystem. And while internally displaced in the Philippines, as part of the project Beyond Fight or Flight, they organize themselves in a civil society in order to not be forgotten.
When we convert the above lines into a formal wording, as vision and mission for DIB, it sounds like this:
DIB wishes for a world where everyone has equal rights and opportunities to create good living conditions, and where we take social, economic and environmental considerations into its endeavours.
Through partnerships focused on capacity building, DIB will contribute to the sustainable development of marginalized communities to become more resilient to climate change and environmental degradation. At the same time, we will work to create popular support for the global green transition through information and knowledge sharing.
