Existing MIF user accounts will work for logging in to NEXSO.
On your first visit you will be redirected to a new profile page and asked to complete some extra personal information and to accept the terms of agreement.
Welcome! To get started, use the Login link in the top right of the page. Once on the login page, click Register, complete your Account Details and Contact Details, accept the terms of agreement, and click Create Profile. You will receive an email with instructions for verifying your account.
Attempt to log in with an email address and password. If this does not work, follow the instructions above to create a new account.
After registering an account you will receive an email with a verification link. Open the link in the email or copy and paste the URL into your web browser. The NEXSO website should open and display a confirmation message that you have successfully verified your account.

If you do not already have an account you will need to register before you can log in (see above, Registering). If you have forgotten your password see below, Troubleshooting: Forgot Password.
Use the language dropdown selector at the top of the page. NEXSO is currently available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Clicking on your name in the top right of the page will take you to the account page. The Edit button beneath your profile information will place your page in edit mode and enable changes to be saved.
New institutions cannot be created without first starting a submission. Institution details are collected during the first stage of the submission process, after providing a title for the idea or solution being submitted.
Make sure you are logged out of NEXSO. Visit the Login page and select the link for Forgot Password? A new password will be emailed to you.
You must be logged in to make a submission. The process begins by following any of the Submit links on the homepage, and starting the six steps:
A good title is short, crisp, and easily understood. Think like a marketer; do not use a generic or overly vague phrase like Youth Employment or Recycling Program. Make your solution stand out.
Elaborate on the title with a catchy pitch using no more than two sentences. This should entice people to find out more by clicking-through from a search listing to your dedicated solution page.
In many cases a single sentence is sufficient to elaborate on the title of a solution. Please note it is unnecessary to reference the title in your tag line, these two attributes are always displayed together.
A good tag line requires the title for further clarification of the solution, and vice versa, neither the tag or title is sufficient by itself.
Indicate the countries where you have piloted your solution. Select all that apply. If you add an incorrect country use the “X” in the country box to delete it.
Please select the development theme(s) that can best be used to classify your solution. You may select a maximum of three.
Please select the delivery format that best describes how your solution is provided.
Identify the end consumer, client, or beneficiary of your solution. Beneficiaries can be individuals, organizations, or groups. You may select a maximum of three.
Describe the particular development problem that your solution seeks to alleviate (NOT a macro global problem such as climate change or poverty). This description should justify the need for your solution. Please address the following questions in your writing:
Demonstrate how your solution is innovative, how it makes a difference, and how it addresses the specific challenge you described.
Directly address the challenge or development problem, and describe how your specific, innovative method addresses the challenge effectively. The Innovation should be actionable, not simply a documented best practice or a concept for reviewing.
Explain the results and effects a potential solution adopter (a project designer) can expect from implementing your solution. Use the information below to guide your writing:
Use this section to provide more information that can convince potential adopters to connect with your solution. This is another opportunity to explain your solution in detail, or elaborate on a particular area. You might use this section to provide a history of your solution (how it was developed or to demonstrate any credentials that might be relevant to the user or potential adopter. Please do not simply summarize information already provided.
Please detail any specific points of interest someone would need to know about implementation in order to evaluate the solution and its replication potential. Highlight any specific characteristics, features, and prerequisites that may not be sufficiently clear from other sections. Use this section to highlight whether any part of your solution is provided in a different format than the main delivery format.
Please provide an indication of how long it takes to complete an implementation or transfer of your solution. This can be a general reference or historical duration from a previous implementation. The available options are based on typical development projects. Include the time required for preparation, adaptation, implementation, and any evaluation reporting. Further clarification of the time frame can be provided in the Duration Details section.
This section is meant to provide any further clarity for the Duration Reference. Include billable days/hours for the life of the project if relevant to the cost unit. For solutions that have long-term support (virtual or face-to-face) indicate the length of support provided. If there is an exact implementation time frame, different from the pre-defined options, this can be inserted here.
Please indicate the approximate cost to implement your solution based on historical amounts. This is designed to give to the potential adopter a guideline on cost. It is understood that a number of factors come into play when an actual implementation is undertaken. These contingencies can be outlined in Additional Cost Considerations. Select a cost unit and then enter numbers only in the text box. The numbers should represent the US Dollar amount.
Please indicate any considerations that will influence the actual cost of implementing your solution. Please indicate the typical number of units if a variable cost is associated with the cost unit, for example:
Other important items to consider:
Please select all resources that are readily available for the implementation of your solution or for the transfer of knowledge. This enhances the description and shows the effort undertaken to develop resources for scale and replication.
To delete a submission please contact the systems administrator.
Only owners of a solution can make edits. A published submission must be returned to draft status first. Navigate to the solution you wish to edit and select Unpublish. This will return the solution to draft status (accessed through your account page) and enable edits to be made. Once you are finished, re-publish the solution.
On the left-hand side of the Browse page, use the List function to mark the Type of content you want to browse, Topics, Subtopics, and Delivery Format, or Country you are interested in viewing. Access more results by selecting additional items from the List menu.
Please use the Report as Spam button at the top of each solution page to report abuse. NEXSO will be notified and will take action as needed.
You will need to register a new account on NEXSO (see Getting Started).
You will need to request a new password. On the Login page select the Forgot Password? link. A new password will be sent to your email account.
If you are already logged in when you arrive at NEXSO for the first time it means that you are already logged into another MIF website. You will still need to follow the steps outlined above.
