The year 2001 was one of consolidation and significant further expansion for ICG. About the only thing that did not change was our core mission: conflict prevention and containment, pursued through field-based analysis, policy prescription and high-level advocacy. If the reaction from policy-makers is any guide, our visibility and effectiveness also expanded commensurately.
Among the highlights of 2001:
- ICG extended its reach in Asia and Africa and commenced new programs in Latin America and the Middle East.
- The organisation's expenditure increased from under $U.S.6 million to nearly $U.S.7 million.
- Core full-time staff grew from 55 to 75, representing between them 31 nationalities and speaking 38 languages.
- ICG produced 70 reports and briefing papers during the course of the year, up from 49 in 2000, on conflicts and crises in over 20 countries and territories.
- There were half a million visits during the year to ICG's website with more than half a million reports downloaded.
Plans for 2002:
- ICG's primary task will be to continue to increase the effectiveness of policy and advocacy efforts, while consolidating our organisational and financial base.
- Projects commenced in 2001 will be brought to maturity and maximum productivity.
- Ensure that ICG's policy prescriptions are as sharp, relevant, well-timed and practical as possible. The emphasis on subjecting draft recommendations to broader review will be reinforced.
- Use ICG's strong resource base for effective high-level and media advocacy.
