The NEXUS Concept offers a new approach to sustainable development. It addresses the problem that most development projects depend on donations, tackle an isolated problem and have no long-term vision and durability. Financial solidity and an innovative revenue model are needed to be attractive for impact investors and create a lasting impact. To reach the SDGs by 2030 we need adaptive and inclusive business models and solutions that can be customized to the individual local context.
The NEXUS Concept offers a holistic and inclusive business model. It aims to provide rural fishing and farming communities with access to basic infrastructure, modern technology, equipment, know-how and opportunities to enhance their income and livelihoods. The approach stands for self-sustaining model, is financially solid, offers a scalable concept and is inclusive as it engages with the local population and collaborates with the small-holders.
