CROP Annual Report 2014

CROP Annual Report 2014

Annual Report 2014

This is the last annual report to be presented before the CROP Strategic and Communication Plans begin to provide guidance or the 2015-20 period. The elaboration of both plans was at the core of institutional discussions in the period covered by this report.

The Strategic and Communication Plans both provide a clear understanding of our mission and priorities, as well as ways to achieve them. They will also allow our small secretariat to maximize the use of existing resources in order to facilitate the impact we want to have on science and society. The plans were embraced by UiB, ISSC, the Scientific Committee and the Secretariat at CROP's Annual Meeting in 2014.

The new sense of direction is very relevant for a growing organisation. By the end of 2014, we counted 780 scholars actively participating in our network activities, showing an annual increase of 24.2% in our membership. Implementing both plans and responding to the diversity of demands posed by a fast-growing and diverse network is going to be a challenge for CROP. However, there is a clear understanding of the responsibility we have to make our evidence-based critical voices effective in the contemporary debate on poverty eradication and prevention.

We would like to keep this report as a concise instrument to describe CROP's activities and direction. We have tried to avoid an “inflation of words" and hope that in so doing, we will be fulfilling the readers' expectations.
