Development cooperation aims to improve the living conditions and future prospects of marginalized communities. This is a diverse and complex task. It spans across securing resources and environmental protection, promoting democratization and social and economic development. It is all about initiating processes of change. Sustainable successes are especially evident when these interdependencies are fully considered.
As an experienced service provider, we are fully aware of these requirements. We have successfully prepared, implemented, and completed many projects in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and increasingly in Asia.
Field of expertise
Good Governance and Civil Society
Governance is about how political issues are formulated in a society, how conflicts are carried out, and how decisions are made. This involves both state and non-state actors. In this sense, the promotion of good governance includes the responsible use of state institutions with political power and public resources.
AMBERO counts on many years of diverse experiences in this field. We are active in the areas of decentralization, institutional support, the promotion of civil society, and systemic organizational development. We advise on modernizing the public administration and national systems of public financial management as well as on building a path to peaceful coexistence in fragile contexts.
Field of expertise
Climate, Environment and Biodiversity
In view of the pressing ecological challenges of our time, climate protection and resilience development, biodiversity conservation, its sustainable use and conflict mitigation, as well as environmental management and resource efficiency are urgent global tasks.
In response to these challenges AMBERO has developed competencies and approaches that range from policy advise to institutional development, from multi-stakeholder coordination to community involvement, from funds management to sustainable livelihoods, from training to knowledge management, from corporate sustainability to gender and do-no-harm.
Our portfolio covers climate action and climate transparency, biodiversity conservation and sustainable value chains in the AFOLU sector, integrated water resources management and water security, land use, spatial planning and conflict mitigation.
Field of expertise
Regional and Economic Development
It is largely undisputed that economic growth is a necessary, though not sufficient requirement, for overcoming poverty and underdevelopment. A strategic economic promotion that is derived from the national development strategies of partner countries and thereby recognizes and develops untapped potential is required. The priority is to improve conditions, bring stakeholders together, generate capacities, and create space for interaction.
We advise our clients (GIZ, EU, NUFFIC) on new approaches in regional and land management and efficient design of municipal services through strengthening their competitiveness, cluster and network building, as well as through the promotion of business and employability and supporting green economy.
We implement projects in Africa, Middle East and South-East Europe supporting thousands of young people, women, refugees, and marginalized groups to increase their technical and employability skills, find jobs, establish own start-up businesses, develop sustainable business plans, get access to social services and land rights, participate in communal planning and resource distribution processes and mediate peace processes or solve conflicts in their communities.
Every idea, every initiative finds fertile ground when those affected can adequately participate. It is crucial that they obtain the necessary expertise and capacity in order to implement activities independently and sustainably. Our aim is to ensure that development occurs with our partners on equal footing.
With our local partners, we develop solutions that take into account local knowledge and ensure the lasting impact of our contributions.
We offer the following engineering and consulting services:
