Natural resources are absolutely essential for human life. All over the world, human wealth and the development of countries is based on the use and consumption of different resources like water, land or raw materials. Ideally, natural resources not only contribute to wealth and develop the economy on local and national level, but also reduce poverty and bring stability to countries. Yet, for a sustainable use of natural resources, the protection and preservation of the environment is of eminent importance. Therefore, FAKT is engaged in the broad field of Natural Resources and is offering a wide variety of services in the following areas:
