About OneWorld

Established in 2001, OneWorld is a privately owned sustainable development organisation operating primarily in Africa, with bases in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Mozambique.

Key to our approach is the idea of resilience. Resilience underlies sustainability, and the objective of building resilience on the African continent is central to our five programmes of work: natural resources; climate finance; climate change and security; global governance; and low carbon development.
With our strong base of regional partners, OneWorld adds value by working at the interface where scientific research, policy and development intersect. Our work is by its nature interdisciplinary, but with three distinct outputs: applied research; technical analysis and advice; and publishing.

A large part of our work is to respond to continental demands for research, strategy development and policy analysis, and to translate these into publications. But our work is not simply demand-driven: we aim to provide thought leadership and play the role of game-changers, striving to reveal possibilities for resilient development in partnership with our clients.
