Our Impact

We create positive change in communities, local economies, and in international development systems.


Understanding Our Impact


S3IDF’s work positively impacts local communities, builds inclusive markets, and contributes to changes in thinking and processes within international development systems.

At the community level, we improve lives and livelihoods and help to protect the environment. At the market level, we change the business-as-usual practices of local players to be more inclusive, and on the ecosystem level, we work to build capacity and integrate market-based approaches into other development players’ operations.
