United Nations & Non-Governmental Organisations

Sharing values on societal challenges and humanitarian initiatives

Inspired by sharing the same values as our clients, Deloitte is highly engaged in societal commitments and humanitarian initiatives. The challenges faced by UN agencies, NGOs and Not-For-Profits are evolving. The complexities of delivery and the pressure of transparency can sometimes distract from making maximum impact.

Making maximum impact and remaining focused on the mission

Working in high risk environments combined with frequent geo-political shifts challenges the flexibility of many international organisations. NGOs face fluctuating demand and resource pressure across an advancing technological landscape that is difficult to govern or fully benefit from.

Limited resources requires programme prioritisation and informed decision making, with a robust theory of change. Donor management in a world of increasing competition for funds means that it has never been more important to articulate an organisation's contribution to the mission and target investments for optimum effectiveness.

This investment pressure increases the demand for innovative delivery models to improve efficiency, streamline complex logistics, strengthen local delivery capacity and empower governance and control.

Using our experience to your advantage, we believe we can support you in responding to these challenges. We aim to accelerate your progress to capture business value, and allow you to focus on your speciality.
