INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT carries out consulting projects in developing and newly industrialized countries on behalf of national, European and international donor institutions and organizations. We support the development and implementation of adapted and flexible infrastructures in waste management, flood protection and for adaptation to climate change.

Our services go beyond the engineering aspects of a project: We work across sectors to also optimize the institutional and legal framework and promote the use of innovative technologies in newly industrialized and developing countries.

We have been active in development cooperation for 20 years – in short- and long-term projects in Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Europe. On-site presence and coordination are essential prerequisites for success. Because we provide more than just engineering technology: We work across sectors and help to improve the institutional and legal framework.
