r0g_INITIATIVES

r0g_agency’s initiatives form the conceptual cornerstone of its work in applying the power and possibilities provided by open systems solutions in addressing the challenges posed by post-conflict transition and rapid societal transformation. These include establishing innovative strategies for open development, creating forums for dialogue, research and exchange, with an aim at realization and implementation of the initiatives with partner organizations, networks and civil society at large.
