AAV implements development programmes and projects in rural and urban areas representative of the three regions of the country where the poverty rate and ethnic minority population are high and where they face issues that are relevant to three programme priorities:
(i) (Extreme) poverty and/or inequality in the location, seriousness in the violation of rights of women, children, ethnic minorities, people with disability, civil society organizations, impacts by climate change and emergencies
(ii) Commitments and capacity of local partners, cooperation of local authorities and support of local people
(iii) Absence of overlapping of funding methods or similar programmes by the Government or organizations, donors or partners
(iv) Possibilities of replication and strategic balance between rural and urban poverty
(v) Innovation and new issues that will ensure AAV’s pioneering position in the programme formulation, implementation and impacts.
