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 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 a harmful investment project – or the advocates supporting them – can submit a request for investment chain mapping and pressure point analysis. 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.
We will review your request to determine whether the project of interest is suitable for investment chain mapping. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
