There are approximately 7 billion people occupying the earth today. This figure is projected to increase by 28% by 2050. As the world population increases, the need for food security, quality healthcare, and sustainable development become very critical. Countries are being guided by the United Nations through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to prepare for a future that might demand survival of the fittest. However, not all countries have similar capacities to ensure adequate preparation for the future. A valuable tool is sharing of experience among countries with similar geo-political landscapes. Through sharing of ideas, countries can adopt innovations to resolve challenges in their respective systems.

This platform exists to offer insight into development challenges and new ideas for resolving some of the dire needs of the world and specific countries. Focus is on developing countries who are downstream of the global development ladder.
