To establish Alliance2015 as a key development partner, specifically but not limited to the EU-funded interventions in Pakistan.
A comprehensive donor engagement strategy targeting (but not limited to) the EU in Pakistan is designed, organized, and executed, positioning the Alliance2015 to access EU-funding via the Multi-Annual Indicative Programme for Pakistan and raising the profile of the Consortium among other key development donors, government authorities and relevant stakeholders.

Founded in 2000 to foster and nurture collaborations for greater scale and impact towards the Millennium Development Goals, Alliance2015 is a strategic and operational network of eight European-based international NGOs, working towards the broader vision of Agenda 2030 and a world free from poverty, hunger, injustice, and inequality. Globally, Alliance2015 brings over 20 years of experience as a consortium to its operations in 85 countries, delivering multi-sectoral aid and development programming to more than 50 million beneficiaries.
In Pakistan, Alliance2015 is represented by ACTED, Cesvi, Concern Worldwide, Helvetas, and Welthungerhilfe. With operational presence in every province of Pakistan, Alliance2015 has established itself as a key humanitarian consortium in the country, providing critical life-saving support to communities affected by crises for over a decade. In Pakistan, the Consortium enjoys a wide range of shared technical and sectoral expertise and complementarities that can be leveraged for the delivery of holistic, timely, and closely coordinated humanitarian interventions. Beyond life-saving interventions, constituent members also have extensive experience in the development sector which can be leveraged in supporting longer-term initiatives that bridge the divide between humanitarian and development programming, and directly contribute to the realization of Agenda 2030 SDGs in Pakistan.
EU Engagement Strategy:
Every seven years the EU develops and publishes country-based Multi-Annual Indicative Programmes (MIP), which outline the EU’s developmental priorities for a specific country as well as the resource allocations associated with these actions. In Pakistan, the current MIP remains under review.
New to the currently deliberated MIP is the introduction of the EU’s Neighbourhood, Development, and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI), which serves to streamline the various EU funding instruments under a single cohesive mechanism and within which the developmental priorities/funding outlined in the MIP will be framed.
Alliance2015 is recognized as a leading actor in the field of humanitarian response in Pakistan. However, despite the extensive experience of its constituent members, Alliance2015 has not yet established itself as a strategic development partner among key donors and stakeholders.
As such, the Alliance2015 seeks to hire an experienced individual to coordinate the development and implementation of a comprehensive engagement strategy to raise the profile of the Consortium among representatives of the EU as well as other key stakeholders (and/or donors) who play roles in the determination of developmental priorities and funding allocations in Pakistan. In doing so, the strategy developed should leverage the extensive and complementary capacities of constituent member organizations in both the development and humanitarian sectors, and take advantage of the parallel roll outs of the EU MIP and the Alliance2015’s Global Strategic Compass to identify strategic entry-points and position the Consortium as uniquely capable of delivering on the EU’s developmental priorities in Pakistan.
