ECO Consult wins GIZ three-year-contract

Niger: Supporting decentralisation and participatory decision making

2018-04/ ECO, in consortium with GOPA Consultants, will provide technical assistance for decentralisation in Niger. Up until 2021 we are going to support the republic in her efforts, to help people identify with their community and mobilize community resources. The GIZ project "Decentralisation and Good Governance" supports the devolution of services and other responsibilities to communities by at the same time capacitating them and promoting peoples' say in municipal accountability and budget use. Intercommunal exchange will be fostered for more social cohesion, and sustainable civil participation instruments installed for improved local government. > More NEWS

Coming to grips with sustainability

Sincere action for development means integrated action

Sustainable development indispensably prerequires ecological integrity, economic viability and social equity. This notion underlies ECO's work as a company and is also reflected in our name. But trivial though this may appear 26 years after UNCED, sustainability remains hard to define – and even harder to apply — in practice. For instance, any attempt at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions from forest conversion will fail if we do not touch on land rights, productivity and equitable decision-making. Likewise, the Global Landscapes Forum at their recent gathering in Bonn, December 2017, again underpinned the need for coordinated, interdisciplinary and inclusive action. > Fields of Work
