The report "Achieving 25 x 25 through civil society coalitions" was launched at the first-ever NCD Alliance Forum 2015 in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The NCD Alliance commissioned the independent situational analysis of national and regional NCD alliances in the lead-up to the Forum. It aims to: 

  • Understand how NCD alliances have developed and how their growth can be accelerated and sustained;
  • Obtain a snapshot of national/regional priorities and advocacy, with a basic inventory of advocacy activities currently being undertaken;
  • Identify key challenges and support needs and inform NCDA's capacity-building programme;
  • Identify key assets and opportunities for potential cooperation between countries;
  • Inform the development of NCDA's national strategy and its 2016-2020 strategic plan. 

The situational analysis highligths the significant number of national and regional alliances that have emerged in the past five years around the world. The findings of this report demonstrate that the alliances are extremely diverse. No two alliances are the same, and therefore no entirely uniform approach can be formulated for working with them.
