Each BTI partner brings decades of experience in policy and program development, evaluation and assessment; strategic and action planning; futures thinking and econometric modelling; development management at all governance levels; communication and advocacy; stakeholder engagement; and capacity building in academic and non-academic contexts.
Brain Trust Inc. (BTI) engages designers and managers of development initiatives, and investors and implementors of sustainable socio-economic and environmental projects, to think out and help realize new ways of linking opportunities and challenges in the following:
to bring about social equality in equilibrium with a healthy natural environment.
We do these, collaboratively, among highly qualified and experienced professionals of different disciplines. In their various involvements in development work, these professionals are brought into BTI endeavors to engage donor entities, private sector investors, government agencies, and peoples and communities of various cultures and histories, to bring about an equitable social order in different ecological niches. This collective work is vested in a vision of society enjoying personal and collective dignity, security of their chosen ways of living, and harmony between change and tradition. It is thus a vision of a balanced, integrated and integrative development.
We seek to be instrumental in the attainment of inclusive societies and economies that are climate change resilient, culture sensitive, politically & socially empowered, and efficient and sustainable in harnessing resources toward shared prosperity.
