Knowledge Pele and the University of Cape Town
Knowledge Pele and the University of Cape Town’s Poverty and Inequality Initiative have established a research partnership. The purpose of the partnership is to provide a structured platform for reflecting on and improving private-sector led development. Specifically, the partnership seeks to provide academics with a data-driven lens into the development initiatives and practices of the private sector. The outcome of this approach, will be a scientific understanding of the true development impacts of private sector initiatives. Additionally, it provides opportunities for policy-makers, development financiers and corporate social investors to identify programmes that are worthy of investing in for greater development impact.
