Our Socioeconomic Tool

At IIA we constantly monitor our impact through our unique socioeconomic tracking tool that measures the impact of our African Partner Pool in 3 ways:

Measuring our impact

We have developed a socio-economic impact model to assess and understand how our work benefits local economies.

The model focuses on the economic added value and jobs created through the local sourcing facilitated by our APP platform.

 

For every deal that goes through the APP, we capture the value and sector of that tender. Our unique socioeconomic model then allows us to track the $ amount retained in country through taxes, profits and household income. This model also tracks the number of jobs supported by this tender across different sectors of the economy. As more and more business and training opportunities go through IIA, we calculate the overall impact we are having on the economy by purchasing goods and services locally rather than from abroad.
