By mobilizing cutting-edge science and technology and using a multi-sector and multi-scale approach for effective local development, Millennium Promise seeks to accelerate sustainable development and eradicate poverty across rural sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
This will include the institutionalization of our approach in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond by collaborating with partners in research and applied field work. This will also involve the up-scaling of our approach sub-regionally by providing technical and operational assistance and capacity building support to institutions in our intervention area.
Sectors of intervention
