Mapping an investment chain can be a complex, time-consuming process. Often, information about the various actors can be difficult to find – sometimes by design. The techniques and information sources described on this website are proven to be effective in mapping investment chains and identifying pressure points for advocacy. However, sometimes these methods have limits.
Inclusive Development International can help. Through our Follow the Money Initiative, we have established a team of researchers who bring experience and knowledge to investment chain mapping. We have at our disposal a range of sophisticated digital tools – some of them subscription-only – that can illuminate actors that might otherwise be invisible to advocates working on the ground. We also have a track record of devising advocacy strategies that get results.
Communities affected by land or resource rights violations – or the advocates supporting them – can submit a request to Follow the Money for investment chain mapping and pressure point analysis services. We can map your project’s investment chain and recommend potential advocacy strategies based on what we find. We will report this information back to you in a concise, easy-to-understand memo written in English.

Please note that Follow the Money is currently in the pilot stage. As such, we are accepting mapping requests only from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. As we expand the project beyond the Mekong region, we hope to begin accepting requests from other countries in the future. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
