Economic & Social Development

It takes more than good intentions. The team at AUA offers innovative technical assistance and project advisory services to help social development initiatives fulfill their objectives in a way that fosters local ownership and capacity, is rooted in local context, and is economically and environmentally sustainable.  As professionals with years of work in the field in the Middle East, North Africa, and Latin America, we are well-equipped to facilitate successful projects in challenging environments.

AUA provides tailored expertise in gender rights and equality, educational equity, employment generation, poverty alleviation and social inclusion, as well as promoting environmental justice and violence prevention. We are committed to catalyzing our own skills for the secure livelihoods of urban communities and populations at risk and bring a special expertise in communities with significant social and physical heritage. We have experience in identifying assets among diverse communities and stakeholders and in bridging the formal and informal economies for sustainable development.
