Sustainable management of natural resources is the most important objective in all forms of development whether at the grass roots or national levels. Through technological know-how and technical assistance transfers, Consia recognises the need to design, plan and implement environmental programmes through participatory governance, legislation screening, legal support, institutional building and development. Training, awareness raising, and analysis of alternative resources and income generation are key elements to any programme, as are stakeholder-building and cross-sector cooperation, with. for example, agriculture, forestry, urban development and tourism.
Consia has the competencies to capacity-build the professional and institutional abilities required within the environment sector of a country or region, as well as to construct demonstration or pilot programmes designed to combat the environmental problems faced in the development of a country.
