At JSTI we recognize that a community's relationship with their built environment is only as good as the social and economic governance that underpins it. We work with communities, local, regional and national governments along with international organizations to deliver meaningful projects that positively impact people at a grass roots level.
Our services in this area mainly cover:
- Economic Development
- Social & Environmental Sustainability
- Monitoring & Evaluation
We have lead on specific economic development programmes such as our work in Honduras implementing a programme designed to increase the capabilities of government to promote legitimate work opportunities and reduce unemployment in the country.
In Algeria we worked to deliver a sustainable environmental policy focused on the city of Algiers, providing support, guidance and technical assistance to the government's Physical Planning & Environment department.
