How We Work

Participatory processes for sustainable results

Together with our clients and their partner organisations we design and accompany processes appropriate to their situation and needs. In our consultancy work we combine specific knowledge, methodological expertise, and intercultural experience. Our work is process-oriented and aims to facilitate the planning, implementation and monitoring of strategies and programmes by partner organisations, and to steer them towards tangible results. We assist them in capacity development to open up new perspectives and sustainable solutions in a world facing challenges which can only be addressed globally.

Interdisciplinary teams

We work in interdisciplinary teams with engineers, economists, and social scientists. Our consultants are specialised in sectors such as sustainable agriculture; climate change adaptation; water supply and sanitation; vocational education and training; employment promotion and natural resource management. At the same time we apply methodological expertise such as up-to-date evaluation and impact assessment methodologies, organisational analysis, mentoring and coaching in our work.

Local expertise as a key to development

We believe in working in mixed teams which combine international expertise with local know-how and local perspectives for the benefit of our partners. Whenever possible we work in equal partnership with local consultants and national institutions. As part of our non-profit agenda we systematically build partnerships within our regional and global network of consultants.
