Our Story

Sustainable development requires collaborative efforts from both Public and Private Sectors to contextualise complex global challenges and turn them into opportunities by developing viable and scalable solutions.

Second Stream realises the missed opportunity by governments, development partners and private sector players to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 7, 13 and 17).

The limited capacity to develop, grow and attract the requisite investments are among the key barriers to survival and sustainability of ideas and programmes. Our aim is to close this gap through policy research and formulation, co-development of innovation and programmes and providing business development services to the digital, energy and agriculture sectors.

Through our approaches and partnerships, we hope to enable our clients to increase programme and business success inorder to improve people’s livelihoods, reduce energy poverty and adverse effects of climate change.
