Resources and tools

The NREN Case Review group has collated resources and tools designed to assist you in making the case for your NREN, and also to achieving sustainability. These include templates for needs/stakeholder matrices, business/financial model templates and marketing exercises.

Main resources and tools

Needs/stakeholder matrix template

As outlined in our approach, a sound NREN business model builds on knowing your stakeholders and their needs. This matrix can help you identify stakeholders and map their priorities.

Business model

An outline of a business model that has successfully been adopted in countries across Africa and Central Asia.

NREN financial model

An NREN’s financial model contains all the financial data of the NREN as an organisation.

Document library

A comprehensive list of guidance materials related to NREN development and value. The material has been categorised into three key areas – target audience, topics and essential NREN reading.
