SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation that makes a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty by helping them raise incomes and access basic services. We aim for premium quality and focus on three sectors: energy, agriculture, and water, sanitation and hygiene. Our team of more than 1,300 staff is the backbone of SNV. With a long-term, local presence in over 25 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, we know how governments work and how relationships are built.
SNV’s work in energy is primarily guided by SDG 7, which aims to achieve universal access to affordable and sustainable energy by 2030. By applying our know-how, we can deliver impact at scale, through direct results and systems change. We implement our programmes entirely through project funding awarded by public development agencies, foundations, multilateral banks, governments and the private sector. This requires us to work efficiently, realise effective solutions and invest in operational excellence every day.
