We offer an adaptive, albeit an alternate view of how to attain the Sustainable Development Goals in rural communities in Africa especially the water, sanitation, nutrition, agriculture, climate change and environmental management goals.
Our solutions are unique because we continuously create community engagement strategies that are as robust as the data-driven solution we offer.
Usually, we analyze dis-aggregated data to identify disparities, and then adopt strategies to reduce those disparities, in addition to applying an equity lens upstream—in the places where people make critical decisions about an initiative.
Applying an equity lens involves working to build trust among stakeholders and clients, and working to ensure that all of them can engage fully in the enterprise. Our ability to combine data for action and data for impact; two key aspects of data collection has enabled us to fundamentally transform our application of social innovation, and ultimately delivering social impact far more effectively.
We drive the delivery of the vital development strategies including targeted expansion plans by instituting a learning culture. This enables us to regularly analyze and adjust our strategies and maximize long-term impacts. Also we install flexible program designs that ensure program design provides flexibility, emphasizing need for the program to learn and improve based on results. Such a design helps explain the program’s approach and set down some impact level targets.
Often, we ensure our program outlines clear ‘pathways’ that describes what systemic changes we expect to achieve and how the program will influence those changes via investments, business innovations and reforms resulting in better functioning environment – through which the poor can work themselves out of poverty.
These pathways for pro-poor growth, jobs and income will be ‘carved’ into niches, making them grow faster and in a more inclusive manner so that the poor take part in and benefit from economic green growth. This expected pathway can then be used as the basis to monitor progress.
