We are successful and ambitious in providing technical, managerial and administrative support to community groups, non-governmental organisations, resource centres and local government institutions.

Energy & Climate

Skat links climate protection, renewable energies, community empowerment and poverty reduction through holistic approaches, which facilitate equal access to environmentally sound energy technologies, called for in SDG7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

Networks & Knowledge Management

We design systems for the collection, analysis, storage and dissemination of information, and support organisations and networks to make better use of their knowledge.

Environmental Management & Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM)

Tackling poverty and improve infrastructure is only successful if it is well integrated with natural processes and cycles. At Skat, we act as knowledge brokers and networkers to bring together expertise and knowledge around water and waste management so that environmental and IWRM safeguards and goals are successful. Our particular technical strengths are around pollution control from solid and liquid waste management, water source protection and groundwater management and science.
