OneWorld is an African-based sustainable development consulting organisation focused on adaptive development within the context of a changing climate and resource constraints. We work at a science-policy-development interface with a view to building resilience to the challenge of climate change. As the region continues to develop, we constantly seek ways of supporting in-country and inter-regional objectives whilst accelerating the pace of change.

Water Governance

Improving political, environmental and human capacity to adjust to a changing climate.

Understanding and developing strategic financial insights to meet regional, national and local adaptation and mitigation needs
