MRAG has extensive experience of undertaking resource management projects in developing countries. These projects place substantial emphasis on integrating conservation and natural resource management within the overall national, regional, and local economic growth strategies of recipient countries. We frequently build conferences, seminars and workshops into our projects, as well as other less traditional means of facilitating collaboration and sharing of information on sustainable natural resources management. MRAG’s staff includes consultants who are skilled at working with local communities and who are aware of the multi-dimensional nature of poverty. There is considerable emphasis on the uptake of information and project outputs and the use of impact pathways and theories of change underpins efforts to ensure positive developmental impacts. A commitment to developing capacity has strengthened our relationships with in-country organisations and communities therefore enhancing the outcomes of projects.
