Hivos invests in knowledge to trigger change. By understanding the drivers of social change (and upheaval), we can make our role and programmes more effective. Our aim is to translate the knowledge and innovations we co-create with academics, policy makers and businesses, as well as with civil society, activists and grass roots stakeholders, into new policies, practices and scalable solutions to achieve social change.
