Africapitalism Research Project
As the Africapitalism research fellow at the Sustainable Business Initiative, I project-managed the five-country Africapitalism £310,000 research project funded by the Tony Elumelu Foundation.  You can access the report here.

The Circular Economy Project at the University of Edinburgh
Adun successfully applied for funding (£6,000) to conduct and manage the main research of understanding Circular Economy opportunities at the University of Edinburgh.

The Circular Economy is about transitioning from a ‘take-make-dispose’ linear approach to resource use, to systems that encourage reuse and extraction of maximum value before returning resources to the biosphere.

You can read the report here.
