Our models are designed to address challenges that have systemic root causes.

Here are some of the models we have designed.

Experimental Policy Research for Building Sustainable Post-Mining Economies

This model is designed to support evidence-based policy formulation processes by exploring how the transition towards a low-carbon future can create new opportunities, particularly in agriculture, to mitigate climate change, to advance food and nutrition security, build resilience, create local economic development opportunities, and remediate land.


Collaborative Innovation Design Model for Community Entrepreneurship

The model involves a collaborative design process that enables individuals with low employability scores in underserved communities to map resources, opportunities and the ecosystem surrounding them, and leverage these to create innovative business models that tackle systemic challenges and create entrepreneurship opportunities.

Innovating Agricultural Systems for Local Economic Development

The model is designed to stimulate the development of systemic local economic strategies with a focus on supporting smallholder farmers to transition from subsistence to commercial farming. At its core, the model encourages Africans to embrace farming as a business that has the capacity to enhance climate resilience and adaptation, job creation, food security and nutrition.
