i3S is a consulting firm specialising in economic and political exchanges with West Africa and Central Africa.

Founded by Edgard Kpatindé, lawyer and expert on global security issues, i3S supports its customers in developing their activities in this region of Africa, which many believe they know, but where it is easy to make missteps. Through a network of correspondents in all the countries of the area, and by leveraging its intimate knowledge of ground realities, i3S provides the information clients need for implementing their decision-making process. Benin, Togo, Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Chad, Congo Brazzaville and DRC, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Cameroon, Mauritania: there is not a country in the sub-continent with which I3S cannot work effectively and discreetly.

Edgard Kpatindé

A sought-after expert in global security and African issues, before founding i3S, Edgard Kpatindé advised several African heads of state. His detailed knowledge of the strategic, geopolitical, and intercultural issues, and his understanding of people, have made him a privileged observer and player in exchanges with West Africa and Central Africa. His experience on the ground, closer to the people themselves, and the role he has been called upon to play in the highest echelons of power in many African countries have given Edgard Kpatindé the ability to understand African realities in all their complexity and to provide his clients with a vision of the issues that is both nuanced and pragmatic.
