Integra approaches gender equality and social inclusion as a central crosscutting theme across all of our practice areas. We are a lead implementer of several methodologies designed for USAID and MCC to develop gender-sensitive interventions to achieve equality, empowerment and sustainable growth.
The ICT sector has great potential for improving firm productivity and enabling better social outcomes in health, education and public governance. Within this sector, Integra has helped facilitate access to broadband for over 4.7 million people.

Integra works with donors like USAID who promote political freedom as an integral part of international development. Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG) strategies generally focus on efforts to ensure both participation and accountability to achieve governance that protects both democratic ideals and human rights. The promotion of DRG is seen both as vital to the pursuit of freedom and national security and to achieving development goals.
The goal of development work with regard to education systems is to enable all children and youth to acquire the education and skills needed to be productive members of society. Education acts as both an equalizer and an enabler and countries who aim for equal access to quality education will help drive the country to self-reliance. Investments in education lead to many key outcomes including improved health outcomes, sustained democratic governance, greater economic growth, and more peaceful and resilient societies.
One of the best ways to improve the well being of many people across many sectors (including health, education and economic growth) is to ensure access to modern energy services. Unfortunately, over two billion people in the developing world do not have reliable access to electricity. Integra supports donors in the following areas to promote greater access to reliable energy:
Integra works with donors to help developing countries to manage their environmental and natural resources. Economic growth that is sustainable must consider and incorporate responsible use and investment in a county’s natural resources. The impact of activities such as agriculture, forestry, fisheries, mining, urbanization, and infrastructure development can be significant, supporting the need for integrating natural-resource management with economic growth and social change.
Integra supports donors implementing programs that promote families and communities to improve health and nutrition through adopting healthy behaviors. When practiced and supported by all members of the household, these behaviors support improved nutrition and reduced illness. Some examples of the behaviors that lead to improved outcomes include:
Integra combats wildlife crime by harnessing the power of public private partnerships to get the tools needed to the places where they can make the most difference. We also identify technologies to improve forensic and investigative capacities and work to harvest lessons from the field and promote best practices through training and institution-building. Most importantly, we seek to link wildlife crime prevention and social and economic development through land rights and governance.
International development donors and Integra understand that expanding trade and increasing investment will drive economic growth and reduce poverty. This is especially true for the smallest and poorest developing countries because local product demand is not great enough to provide reliable income providing jobs for local families. Global market forces such as competition, human resource development, technology transfer, and technological innovation are the potential benefits of engaging in trade with other countries and seeking foreign investment. However, good governance and legal and institutional reforms are often needed to participate in the rules-based international trading system.
