Strategic and Communication Plans

Strategic and Communication Plans

One of the goals of the CROP Secretariat is to improve communication between researchers and research-based knowledge users, including organisations and decision-makers. To this end, it has developed Strategic and Communication Plans for the period 2015-2020.

Bridging the gap between science and policy is a social imperative when dealing with poverty. CROP's Strategic Plan aims to achieve this by focusing its organisational capabilities on improved communication of poverty research and findings. The plan provides us with a sense of direction and serves as a framework for our work.

The following priority themes have been defined:

  1. Structural and Institutional Change for Sustainable Development: MDGs and post-MDGs Scenario [updated in 2017 to "Agenda 2030 and the SDGs"]
  2. Social Policies and Welfare States
  3. Human Development and Sustainability Science
  4. Poverty and Media
  5. Child Poverty and Inequalities
  6. Rights and Global Justice  


CROP's Communication Plan is designed to support the strategic objectives of CROP and provide action items for communication for the next 6 years.

CROP was established to produce knowledge aimed at lifting people out of poverty. In order to increase its effectiveness, CROP needs to be equipped with a communication plan to serve as a guideline for approaching the different audiences and to describe tasks and responsibilities within CROP.

The CROP Secretariat focuses on the dissemination of research produced within its network. One of the goals of this plan is to improve the communication between researchers and research-based knowledge users, including organisations and decision makers – in other words; to increase the impact of the network's activities.
