We have four main practice areas; Disaster Mitigation and Reconstruction; Poverty alleviation; Design Innovation in Conservation and Wildlife Protection and Design Activism. Typically each area requires different approaches to working and  team members. When approached to work on a project, we assemble the team, develop a scope of services and bring in strong partners.
