STRATEGIC ROLES

  • Science-led independent research: We conduct independent science-led research and explore heterodox perspectives in our search for evidences and solutions. This induces us to advance critical scholarship, promote inter-disciplinary dialogue and amplify grassroots perspectives. This also allows us to emphasise the seamless integration of research and policy as well as the close coupling of research infrastructure and discovery.
  • New approaches to public policies: We explore public policies and development intervention strategies by exposing their underlying paradigms and the impacts on the people. Our emphasis on new approaches allows us to examine alternative concepts, approaches, practices, and interventions by uncovering assumptions and the implications on the people, society and planet.
  • Innovative solutions on the ground: We blend indigenous wisdom with scientific knowledge to provide creative solutions at the grassroots. This also allows us to bring in indigenous perspectives from the margins with a view to shaping development discourse and democratising policy making. Our interactive and participatory learning enable development of innovative practices to respond to diversity of needs, and encourage dissemination and sharing of best practices across communities.
  • Empowering capacity building and community-based management: We embark upon perspective and capacity building as social action to build and strengthen constituencies of change agents for social transformation. Our approach, dialogue among equals enables the rights holders to be authors of their own development as well as organisations to build up tangible and intangible assets.
