Where We Work
A Global Presence
Since 2010, we have worked in 20 countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Our team members bring experience in dozens more. We’ve conducted research and implemented projects in several conflict-affected and post-conflict environments, including post-revolution Libya and flood-affected regions of Pakistan. From government innovation work in Mexico City to health clinics in rural Nasarawa state, Nigeria, our work also spans the urban–rural divide.
Focus: West Africa
In 2011, we set up our office in Nigeria to stay close to the people and institutions we work with in the region. Establishing this durable, regional presence is one of the most direct ways we make ourselves more accountable to the people we serve. Through investment in permanent staff, training local researchers, and building long-term relationships with government and civil society actors, our team provides our clients with an unmatched depth of contextual nuance and agility to rapidly respond to emerging development challenges in the region.
In the West African region, we have a strong track record supporting donors, government at the local, state, and national levels, civil society organizations, and the private sector to improve public service delivery and strengthen government accountability around critical development priorities. Spanning from research, to technology development, to policy design, our work to date includes:
- Context-driven research and program design to help decision-makers allocate development resources based on timely evidence
- Designing and developing appropriate information and communication technologies to improve the efficiency of public institutions
- Building technical capacity of local organizations, including CSOs and media houses, to influence public spending
- Workshop design and facilitation to build community, generate dialogue, and surface actionable learnings
