On the institutional level, we support institutional development projects in numerous countries, and in sectors that include water and environmental sanitation, rural transport, environmentally sustainable building materials production, and urban health. Therefore, Skat facilitates dialogue at all levels of government and civil society.
Skat promotes the combination of sound technical know-how with social competence in projects for sustainable development outcomes. On community level we advocate for the involvement of communities in planning and decision-making to strengthen local capacity. However, we recognise that many community-managed services, such water points, fail if there is no or inadequate external support from local government, thereforce we place government engagement and partnership at the heart of our interventions.
