Busara Center for Behavioral Economics

Organization Type: Service Provider

Busara is an advisory and research organization focused on advancing and applying behavioral science in the Global South. We work with organizations to build behaviorally-informed solutions to help scale their products, programs, and policies. We work to understand the context of decision-making in new markets, with a strong focus in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Our mission is to work with researchers and organizations to advance and apply behavioral science in pursuit of poverty alleviation and our vision is to build behaviorally-informed solutions to help our partners avoid risks, save money, and drive impact. We believe in the importance of behavioral science because while people may feel they have clear intentions, their actions do not always reflect these goals. Behavioral science focuses on understanding these inconsistencies and building models that are more reflective of the human experience.
