Reports, research and publications

World Vision’s extensive library

World Vision encourages the global community to work together for a world that no longer tolerates poverty and injustice.

In advocating for the poor, World Vision regularly researches and publishes a variety of publications – reports, briefings, reports and policy updates – on key development issues.

Our advocacy programs are based on extensive fieldwork with affected communities. We make it clear to agencies, governments and policymakers from many different political and religious systems that we seek only to represent the poor.

World Vision has many years of practical knowledge earned in a development context. Our learnings form a vast library of development practice that is extensive and insightful.

  2. World Vision Australia's Field Ministry Strategy 2008 - 2010 is a three-year strategy document, part of an ongoing communication to communities, staff, partners and the NGO sector to display World Vision Australia’s unique program offering and intentions. This strategy seeks to integrate advocacy, humanitarian and development actions. It focuses on higher-level conceptual analysis rather than tactical country-level detail.

    Aid, Trade and MDGs 
    Australia and the Pacific 
    Climate Change

    Human Rights
    Humanitarian and Emergency Affairs

    Publications range in topics from fair trade programs in South America, maternal and child health in the Asia Pacific and early childhood education in the Solomon Islands. Reports on issues such as early marriage, child labour and human trafficking, and policy papers linking climate change and poverty are also available for download.


  4. World Vision International's quarterly journal, Global Future magazine, features debate on important development questions and articles from policy makers, grassroots activists and development practitioners, including World Vision staff. Each issue of the magazine deals with a topical theme, such as trade, human rights, HIV and AIDS, corporations and conflict.
