The consulting agency Austroprojekt Ltd. started in 1995,taking over all running projects from the development department of Austrovieh,an Austrian company specialised in pure breed livestock exportation.
At the beginning,from the late sixties to the early eighties,its focus was on projects of livestock breeding and animal husbandry. Since 1986,we have progressively extended our activities to all aspects of rural development,covering the introduction of sustainable agriculture,decentralisation and local government,the promotion of small and medium artisan enterprises,environmental protection and the preservation of natural resources,public health services,and water management.
Our environmental work in the fields of the protection of natural resources and the promotion of sustainable agriculture engaged us frequently into conflict resolution. We have always tried to deal sensitively with those conflicts and have therefore employed different methods of conflict management. Later,we have made out of conflict management a topical focal point in starting to implement projects dealing with the prevention of crises and conflicts as a main emphasis. We cooperate in this field with local NGOs,CBOs,and African Regional Organisations (RECs,like ECOWAS).
