Infrastructure and Rural Development

Infrastructure, especially water, sanitation and energy infrastructure, enables economic development, reduces health risks and, therefore, serves as an important basis for better living and environmental conditions. Rural infrastructure is a foundation for significantly improving the quality of human life and accelerating the process of agricultural development. We support our clients in organisational development, institutional and financial strengthening and training, and project implementation and evaluation to assist them in their endeavours to achieve sustainability in their projects.

With our services, we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on “Clean Water and Sanitation – SDG 6”, “Affordable and Clean Energy – SDG 7” and “Climate Action – SDG 13”.
