Planning International Development Projects

Beginnings are delicate times. We work closely with organizations and stakeholders to identify and prioritize intervention areas where impact can be greater.


Our services inform the multiple stages of the planning process —from the systematic integration of stakeholder’s needs and formulation of theories of change, to the modeling of potential impact through ex-ante evaluation designs.

In doing so, we work closely with our clients to ensure the technical quality, the financial sustainability and the economic, social, institutional and environmental viability of development projects.

Assess Practices in Context

Explore the origins of social norms and how attitudes are formed. Situate future project users in their enabling environments through interactive, immersive and observational methods.


Frame the development problem and select intervention lines that are in synergy with the local development context. Learn from past experience and document what others have done before. Propose what the problems are and create theories of change.

Select Relevant Strategies

Work with future stakeholders in interactive and participatory ways, to reach consensus about theories of change, identify new risks and decide on performance measures that have buy-in.


Test models of implementation and assess how a small version of the project performs in categorical contexts.


Demonstrate the desirability and viability of your initiative and fund-raise nationally and internationally.
