The Global Design Partner contributes international human-centred design knowhow and its network of global design experts throughout the various stages of the Program.

Catapult works with diverse clients (socially-minded for-profits, non-profits, and government. organizations) at every and any point in the design process: assessing a specific human need and its complex causes, designing an appropriate solution to meet that need, implementing the solution in the field, and evaluating its efficacy post-launch.  Its emphasis on user research, field studies, technical proficiency, and creative ideation aims to make its products and services meet its clients’ most demanding design challenges.

For the Indonesia Demand-Driven Green Innovation Program, Catapult works closely with INOTEK and the other program partners to bring our global design experience to the problem of developingand implementing market-driven clean energy solutions for low-income Indonesians.  Our goal is to make certain that the solutions that result from the program are meaningful, accessible, desirable, and effective.

GATD is a United States-based, grant-funded not-for-profit organization that works to get technologies designed, developed, and deployed to impact poverty in developing countries. This almost always requires multiple partners working together – often from public and private sectors, as well as developed and developing countries.  GATD provides support for the creation of partnerships (including public-private partnerships), and for a product development process that is coordinated across partners.

Research, design, development, and deployment (RDD&D) of technologies for the poor has particular characteristics that make it highly challenging.  The result is that the poor do not have access to good technology, which means that we are missing opportunities to tackle poverty.

GATD has been designed to offer services that address some of the problems inherent in this field and to address several of the key systemic failures associated with getting better technologies to the poor.
