Analysis, Research & Action in Fragile States & Conflict Zones
Okapi Consulting in South Africa & its sister organisation Okapi Communications in the UK make things happen in tough places:
What? Core operations are conceiving, implementing and evaluating media projects; political analysis and research in conflict zones and fragile states and establishing IT infrastructure in isolated, hard-to-reach places. We’ve set up radio services in Somalia, a pop-up TV service for Zimbabwe and even a communications service for sheep grazing next to the North Sea! We contribute regularly to electronic & print media as experts analysing conflict situations.
Where? Core regions are Africa, especially Central & the Great Lakes Region, but projects as far afield as Scotland and Afghanistan have been completed.
When? Now. In emergency situations – tomorrow may be too late!
Why? We believe in the power of local knowledge and its immense value in finding solutions for tough challenges.
How? There are only solutions.
