We are fascinated by the impact that digital technologies are having on the world and we recognise that the implications for international development and humanitarian response are complex and contested. We specialise in helping programmes use technologies in an inclusive, sustainable and contextually appropriate manner. We advise organisations how technology can be used to enhance their work. We assess the social and economic impact of technologies across our sectors of expertise. We also utilise a range of software tools to make our own work as collaborative and transparent as possible.
A lot of our work on digital technologies intersects with our other areas of sector expertise. This includes studies on how refugees make use of technologies and how technologies can be used within education. Jigsaw has recently conducted work focused on digital technologies with GSMA, Swiss Agency for Cooperation and Development, the European Commission - have a look at our case studies to learn more.
The Jigsaw team is experienced, intelligent, insightful and approachable. They consistently give me better insight and improved outcomes because of their rigorous research, real integrity and understanding of the formidable task on the ground (Avanti Communications).
