One of the core objectives of the IFR is to assist senior leaders to make better decisions by anticipating risk earlier and by sensing opportunities in good time.

Africa is rich with opportunity, but is simultaneously complex and difficult to predict. It is extremely diverse, and yet has a cohesive character. Our African Futures subscription services deliver the most recent futures thinking and foresight on the possible and plausible future(s) of the African continent. This service consists of various publications and workshops.

We scan six themes to provide our clients with these insights:

The New World of Business

Social Capital

Sustainability

Technology and Innovation

Security

The art and science of decision-making

Our publications, which form part of the subscription services, provide insights in concise, digestible pieces of well-researched information. This can help individuals, organisations and governments to prepare for risks and leverage opportunities ahead of competitors. In this way, our clients can obtain the foresight they need to make strategic decisions for the long term.
