CRUNCH Hub

Conflict, Crisis and Global Challenges

The world faces increasingly complex and interconnected challenges. A growing share of international aid goes towards these global challenges, from responding to conflict and humanitarian crises, to dealing with terrorism, corruption and organised crime. The Agulhas Conflict, Crises and Global Challenge (CRUNCH) Hub was established to provide a strategic perspective on these new challenges. We offer our clients evaluation, learning and knowledge management services, to support policy and strategy development.

With over 20 years’ experience advising on rebuilding states and societies after violent conflict, and tackling injustice and insecurity, we provide insight into rapidly evolving challenges in areas such as irregular migration, modern slavery and disrupting illicit markets. Central to our approach is our commitment to the localisation agenda, safeguarding and ethics, as well as gender and social inclusion.
