Welcome to this annual report on the Commonwealth Foundation’s work for the financial year 2017/18. This has been the first year of a new Strategic Plan period (2017-2021). This has required adjustments in approaches and the introduction of new methodologies. These have enabled the organisation to make good progress against the agreed strategic framework.
Planning and delivering civil society inputs to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting has been a significant feature of our work this year. This report includes an immediate assessment of the Commonwealth People’s Forum (CPF 2018). The Forum was well received and this is a moment to record thanks to the United Kingdom as the CHOGM host for the way it partnered with the Foundation on this project.
