Springfield Centre: Plotting a pathway through pandemic and Brexit politics  
This has been an unpredictable year for Springfield Centre. Its operations and service delivery were severely disrupted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The turmoil around Brexit, including the absorption of DFID into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (to form the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office FCDO) added to this uncertainty.
In the year of crisis that was 2020, Swisscontact was able to build on its many years of experience building stable structures, networks, and partnerships at the local level. This helps people, businesses, and the economy as a whole to find their way out of crises more quickly. 
Swisscontact focuses on four primary sustainability criteria. The following examples provide a glimpse into how these criteria make their way into daily project activities.
