Our mission

On Healthy DEvelopments development practitioners working in BMZ-funded projects share innovative approaches, tried and tested interventions, and insights generated in response to development challenges. 

Healthy DEvelopments acknowledges that development initiatives unfold in complex environments and that programmes and projects need to continuously adapt and respond to the dynamics and conditions of their local contexts.

We aim to accompany and document incremental learning processes, moving away from ‘best practices’ towards ‘learning from implementation’ as a basis for adaptive, locally-defined solutions.
