Our 2016 Annual Report is available for download.
2016 was a milestone for GERES, since our association celebrated its 40-year anniversary. Over the last 4 decades, GERES has consistently worked to improve the life conditions of the poorest, preserve the environment and limit climate change. But we never act alone. The actions we carry out are made possible thanks to the continuous support of our technical and financial partners, and to our employee’s commitment.
In 2016, we were able to rely once more on the support and the collaborations of 71 financial partners and 105 technical partners to conduct our social and environmental projects in Europe, Africa and Asia. We warmly and sincerely thank them for their trust.
Key figures of the year 2016
- 75 projects carried out in 22 countries
- 169 employees

Given the magnitude of climate challenge, in a world full of uncertainties, we wish to reinforce our partnerships everywhere with NGO’s, local authorities and the private sector, in order to invent and develop the solutions of tomorrow : they must be efficient, affordable, and bring prosperity and well-being.
We wish you a good read and hope to pursue with you these crucial collaborations!
