Program design & implementation
Whether you are an NGO seeking to better understand and define the impact of your projects, or a start-up looking to develop technology-based solutions addressing humanitarian needs, you need a robust knowledge of the social, political, economic, cultural and environmental dynamics in the locations where you (will) work. You also need specific tools to identify the most effective and efficient strategies forward. This is when we come in!
We design and implement community-centered programs in the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding continuum:
Comprehensive needs assessment, gender analysis, situational analysis & conflict analysis.
Program design strategies – including emergency response plans.
Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL).
Community engagement strategies.
Partnership development between local and international stakeholders including donors.
Market analysis & environmental and social impact assessment for companies in targeted markets.
We support holistic programs in the following intertwined sectors:
NGOs, governmental and inter-governmental agencies, donors, and practitioners seeking to reflect on current practices and genuinely improve the way we conceptualize and deliver sustainable humanitarian and development programs.
Private companies seeking to comprehensively understand and work in fragile and complex ecosystems and partner with international development and humanitarian institutions and experts.
Academic institutions interested in exploring innovative ways to teach international program design and management that fully reflect today’s constantly-evolving and complex realities.
Donor institutions wanting to use their leverage role as a powerful tool for improved practice and well-defined impact.
Companies with infrastructure projects seeking to implement best practices in Environment and Social (E&S) impact assessment processes.
In 2019, in Cameroon, we developed the international development strategy of the NGO AJEEC-NISPED and, together, built a sustainable livelihood and community resilience program in partnership with UNDP. The project seeks to enhance the social and economic opportunities of small-holder farmers and their families – with a focus on women and youth – by maximizing innovation in sustainable agriculture and climate resilience.
