Strategy 2020
 – our collective plan of action to tackle the major humanitarian and development chal-lenges of this decade – we are committed to ‘saving lives and changing minds’.Our strength lies in our volunteer network, our communi-ty-based expertise and our independence and neutrality. We work to improve humanitarian standards, as partners in development and in response to disasters. We per-suade decision-makers to act at all times in the interests of vulnerable people. The result: we enable healthy and safe communities, reduce vulnerabilities, strengthen re-silience and foster a culture of peace around the world.
