The Back to Basix Project addresses 6 structural aspects of the public and private sector in Sierra Leone. While our mission is to create a stable physical environment for the citizens of Sierra Leone, our vision is to marry the stability in the public sector with innovation and invention in the private sector. Creating a sustainable society (adequate shelter, potable water, successful agriculture, etc.) will make room for and encourage a sustainable economic infrastructure.
Permaculture (Permanent Culture) is a set of design principles centered on whole systems thinking, simulating, or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. It uses these principles in a growing number of fields from regenerative agriculture, rewilding, and community. #cleanwater #wata #renewing #sustainable #agriculture
Economics is the study of how societies use scarce resources to produce valuable commodities and distribute them among different people. Developing a physical infrastructure for Sierra Leone also requires developing a sound economic infrastructure in order for businesses to grow and thrive. Such a system would encourage investment and innovation in a plethora of industries. #thebag #cashmoney #gentry #banking #cryptocurrency
Agriculture is the process of producing food, feed, fiber and many other desired products by the cultivation of certain plants and the raising of domesticated animals (livestock). Sierra Leone's agricultural economy needs a re-branding to entice the younger generation to participate and reduce external dependence for food supply. #agriculture #permaculture #farmer #hemp #foodefficiency
Research is a detailed study of a subject in order to discover information or achieve a new understanding of it. Higher education institutions and the private sector are fertile ground for research programs in a plethora of subjects in Sierra Leone. Research is also a bridge between public education systems and the industries who stand to benefit from new and improved understandings. #research #applicationofknowledge #nanotechnology #biomedicalengineering
Law is defined as a body of rules of conduct of binding legal force and effect, prescribed, recognized, and enforced by controlling authority. The operative concept about law and legality is its ability to be enforced. It is paramount, for the development of industry and to maintain commerce, that Sierra Leone conducts serious audits of its current legal system. In addition, business law must be developed in such a way that the lay person, with dedicated study, can operate an ethical and lawful business entity. #BlacksLawDictionary #law #throwthebook
Science & Technology are the driving forces of innovation, medical cures, breakthroughs, and inventions that improve our quality of living and our standards of living. Investing in the development of science & technology among our youth especially, will yield a powerful long term gain in the standard of living in Sierra Leone and all who partner in business with Her.
