The impacts of climate change will be felt first and hardest by the poorest and marginalised communities on earth. If you are looking for research or project design in a development setting we can help you to design your project by working with communities to identify constraints and solutions and improve the adoption and sustainability of your intervention.

Let’s build something together.
