The CARE 2030 Strategic Direction
CARE believes that poverty is injustice, so addressing poverty means addressing unequal power relations.
The CARE's International 2030 Program Strategy priorities three focus areas:
Strengthening Gender Equality and Women’s Voice
Informed by CARE’s Gender Equality Framework, CARE Cambodia works to bring about improvements in women’s agency and capacity, the personal and power relations within which women live their lives, and the structures that
surround and condition their choices.
Guided by CARE’s Governance Programming Framework, CARE Cambodia promotes inclusive governance through stronger civil society representing the rights of women and girls and advocating for inclusion of interests and priorities of women and girls in the development and implementation of policies, laws and delivery of services.
CARE Cambodia works to strengthen women and girls’ capacities to respond to effects of climate change and disasters, and ensure risks and underlying causes of vulnerabilities are managed across all humanitarian and development interventions.
CARE contributes to lasting impact at scale in poverty eradication and social justice, in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Gender equality (SDG 5) sits at the heart of our programmatic ambitions and radiates through all of our work.
By 2030, CARE and our partners will support 200 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice. CARE aims to globally change lives across multiple impact areas:
GENDER EQUALITY: 50 million people of all genders experience greater gender equality (particularly eliminating GBV, and increasing women and girls’ voice, leadership and education).
HUMANITARIAN ACTION: CARE provides quality, gender-focused and localized humanitarian assistance to 10% of those affected in major crises, reaching at least 50 million people by 2030.
RIGHT TO FOOD, WATER, AND NUTRITION: 75 million people, the majority of them women and girls, increase their fulfilment of their right to adequate food, water and nutrition.
WOMEN’S ECONOMIC JUSTICE: 50 million have more equitable access to and control over economic resources and opportunities.
RIGHT TO HEALTH: 50 million people increase the fulfilment of their right to health, and 30 millionwomen their right to sexual and reproductive health.
CLIMATE JUSTICE : 25 million poor and marginalized people, particularly women and girls, have strengthened their resilience and adaptive capacities to the effects of climate change and are contributing to the energy transition.
