Be a Partner

The Locus Initiative seeks partners with an interest in joining a movement to change the manner in which solutions are often imposed and towards the evolution of locally owned solutions to complex development challenges. We are looking to build a broad coalition of partners from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Partners will operate in diverse geographies and at different stages in the development value chain. According to their particular interest, partners will have the opportunity to invest ideas, expertise and/or resources into the Initiative.

In particular we are seeking local and global partners who have:

  • An interest to change current practices to better serve those poor and disenfranchised.
  • Energy and excitement around unleashing local solutions.
  • Ideas for new ways of working that could be transferable to others.
  • Evidence for or desire to seek a locally-centered, integrated approach to solving development challenges.
  • Broad geographical reach and/or deep local roots. We aim for a balance of large, international development players and regional organizations that can leverage local voices.
  • The desire to collaborate with others to advance this critical area of practice.
