What We Do

The bulk of our experience is in the agriculture sector, working along the value chain to:

Strengthen links between smallholder farmers and buyers

Integrate productivity enhancements and quality standards to improve market access and increase incomes

Identify access to finance constraints and work with financial institutions to offset risks and increase lending

Work with governments to identify/address key regulatory issues that impede private sector investment

Integrate technology to bring transparency to supply chains and unlock potential market opportunities

Assess program impacts and propose mid-program modifications, where needed

The key to each of these engagements has been to focus on creating long-term market-driven solutions that are commercially driven, lead to financial sustainability, and ensure social and environmental sustainability.

Practice Areas

Assessment/Sustainable Strategy Formulation

Challenges in emerging markets are multifaceted, based on systemic issues, regulatory burdens, and infrastructure constraints among others. Understanding the role of each of these issues is key to identifying the critical levers for meaningful change. Moonshot Sustainability works with clients to sort through these issues to co-create sustainability strategies that reflect those realities while achieving organizational objectives.

Program Design/Advisory Services

Moonshot Sustainability provides program design expertise to clients to identify high-impact opportunities and related constraints, and then define SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timebound) activities to achieve results. This process includes identifying key partners and stakeholders for success.

Partnership Building

Moonshot Sustainability leverages years of experience building win-win partnerships between businesses, governments, NGOs, and local stakeholders. Lessons learned from those experiences, include both positive aspects of partnerships such as creating synergies but also the problems of over-engineering collaboration and trying to scale activities pre-maturely. Today’s emerging challenges such as conservation and climate change require multistakeholder approaches to cover large-scale landscapes/jurisdictions and knowledge in shaping those conversations.
