Supporting national crisis management
To face the regional scale of terrorism, a West African government sought to address structural vulnerabilities and enhance its national capacities to manage the crisis.
Axle was commissioned to design a five-month strategic plan which included actionable steps to strengthen the institutional capabilities of the country.
Overcoming irregular migration flows  
An international organisation sought to enhance its leadership and improve the management of irregular migration flows.
We provided in-depth analyses of the drivers of irregular migration and detailed a comprehensive roadmap identifying adapted and coordinated actions for mutually beneficial and sustainable outcomes.
Mapping disruptions in the energy industry
A leading international energy distributor required an understanding of future challenges to define its long-term vision.
We performed a strategic review of energy trends over a five-year horizon and built a risk prioritisation framework that considered the capacities and operational vulnerabilities of the organisation across a national territory.
Supporting national development priorities
A government decided to adapt its national economic and environmental policies to protect its natural resources and offer a better standard of living to its population.
We supported the drafting of an innovative strategy promoting the use of renewable energy and assisted the dedicated ministries to incubate the initiative at a regional level.

We believe that a critical first step in driving change is a thorough understanding of organisational capacities, national and regional priorities, available resources and sociopolitical risks.

Rather than adopting generic norms for governance, we aim to improve internal capabilities and embed risk management in the decision-making process. This approach lays a strong foundation for growth and fosters efficient and accountable institutions at every level.

We co-design adapted solutions and support senior leaders to assess, prevent and mitigate challenges. This approach lays a strong foundation for growth and fosters efficient and accountable institutions at every level.
