GIZ procurement report: ECO fourth largest cooperation partner

2019-07/ ECO Consult occupies rank 4 of GIZ's most frequently commissioned international services suppliers. This is the outcome of GIZ's comparison of their top 100 procurement recipients in 2018, by contract value. According to the survey, GIZ entrusted almost 3% of their overall services budget to ECO Consult. For the first time we were ahead not only of most direct competitors but also of providers of any areas of expertise. In 2018, GIZ spent a share of 9.3 % of the total service contract volume on rural development and agriculture. 5.2 % went into to decentralization/ urban and regional development, and 3.2 % to climate change adaptation/ mitigation. > 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 27 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, stakeholder platforms like the Global Landscapes Forum keep underpinning the need for coordinated, interdisciplinary and inclusive action. > FIELDS OF WORK
