Integrated Programming for better Outcomes:
RET’s Multi-sectoral Approach
RET’s multisectoral approach guarantees the complementary nature of actions and the interdependence between them. It provides a comprehensive approach to bridge the multi-dimensional needs of young people and women, achieves more significant and long-lasting results, and reduces wasteful duplication.
Young people and women are facing pressing problems and challenges during crises and in fragile contexts. The multi-dimensional adversities cannot be effectively solved without addressing their underlying determinants, many of which lie beyond one particular sector and require interventions across multiple sectors. (Multisectoral and intersectoral action)
RET’s programming is set to work beyond the boundaries of a single sector to effectively address the complex challenges that face young people and women, thus improving their sense of safety, well-being, self-reliance, and reducing inequalities and inequities altogether.
Through effective integrated programming and strategic partnerships, RET’s multi-sectorial interventions worldwide have delivered lasting impact and better outcomes to over 20 million people (indirectly), of which 50% are women and young girls.
Commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030
RET has committed to the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and recognizes the importance of developing integrated programs and actions across all sectors that impact the lives of vulnerable women and young people. Moreover, RET acknowledges that the 2016 Agenda for Humanity advocates for humanitarian agencies to move towards an approach of working jointly across sectors, mandates, and the humanitarian–development-peace nexus to deliver better, collective outcomes (Agenda for Humanity, core responsibility 4c).
RET responds by developing strategic models of governance that focus on public-private partnerships, inter-sectoral collaboration, and the scaling up of multisectoral projects sensitive and responsive to each context, culture, gender, age group, and disability at the local, national, regional, and global levels. RET´s strategic, multi-sectorial approach increases the positive impact of its projects and reduces wasteful duplication. By strengthening the engagement of the private sector, civil society, communities, and individuals both horizontally across industries and clusters and vertically through all levels of governance, RET proposes collaborative models of intervention across the triple nexus that foster joint assessments, shared priorities, and integrated response strategies.
