An established provider for policy development and advisory services

Over the past decade, the Southern Africa Trust has developed a reputation for excellent stewardship of strategic interventions in the policy space across a variety of government and non- government clients. Some of our most notable work has been around bridging trust gaps, brokering dialogue and supporting partnerships that build collaboration amongst diverse range of groups and sectors working on policy development and implementation.

The extensive network, wide-spread renown and varied skill sets within the organisation enable us to move freely between the areas of policy creation and advice, local regional partnership building and convening. Our positioning is unique in the market with our role being to enable appropriate dialogues and discussions between necessary stakeholders. The Trust has the competence and capacity to facilitate partnerships to create and advise on desired policy outcomes.

We are able to bring together different, often competing interests in the pursuit of our clients brief to ensure lasting and practical policies and strategies for government and non-state actors. Our services extend from the initial identification of the correct players necessary for engagement, through to the mediation and convening of final parties to any commercial, non-profit or government agreement or strategy.

There are still high levels of poverty, inequality, and unemployment, and because key actors among government, civil society and the private sector seldom possess the required technical capacity, knowledge and resources to affect their intended outcome, Southern Africa Trust Investment Holdings offers its flagship advisory service to influence, craft and manage policy outcomes.

Our services extend from the initial identification of the correct players necessary for engagement, through to the mediation and convening of final parties to any commercial, non-profit or government agreement or strategy. We also service big corporates that seek to enter new markets within the SADC region, through a social license to operate.

The Southern Africa Trust team includes social scientists, economists, lawyers, finance experts, and philanthropists who understand the region and bring expertise in regional integration, economic development, philanthropy, strategy development, fund management, and other critical areas.
