Chemonics partners with the University of Notre Dame through two initiatives: Notre Dame’s Visiting Associate’s program and its Keough School of Global Affairs’ Integration Lab (i-Lab), a core component of the university’s Master of Global Affairs degree program. Through the Visiting Associates Program, senior global development professionals can apply to work with professors to develop an evidence-based policy document on key topics in global development. Through the i-Lab, the university pairs small student teams with global development partners and private sector innovators to generate research that supports solutions toward the Sustainable Development Goals. The i-Lab students and their professors are partnering with Chemonics’ technical experts to improve development outcomes by identifying innovative, effective approaches to engage the private sector in market-based solutions. A second i-Lab team is working to support environmental stewardship and natural resource conservation by modernizing and enhancing a previously successful method for engaging local communities in participatory land-use planning.
