The UCRISP team has more than 30 years of professional experience focusing on a range of sustainability issues, combining landscape, urbanism, ecology, water resource sustainable management, design, ecological economics, and other disciplines. During the past 12 years, we have focused on sustainable development, primarily in Southeast Asia. Our team has been fully committed to help bring change through transforming current environmental and socio-economic paradigms.
The world's $100 trillion economy depends 100% on eco-hydrological systems. For the most part, common wisdom has been focused on the continued development of conventional engineering solutions to mitigate worsening impacts of natural disasters exacerbated by climate change. The new challenges that climate change imposes on our built and unbuilt spaces are becoming more apparent everyday; they require a renewed approach, where working with underlying and heretofore much-ignored natural systems become the main focus and solution.
Our team understands that environmental challenges occur at different levels, directly on the ground from the grassroots, at municipalities, and regionally, but also at the governmental policy level within the countries we work. We help provide capacity to government officials, and in parallel, assist in the transformation of current policies away from a fixation on the development of infrastructure that disturbs and destroys established ecosystems, drains communities resources, and replicates and reinforces practices that will not sustain our species and others in the New Climatic Regime.
The funds UCRISP receives go towards developing practical sustainable strategies that mitigate the effects of climate change in communities experiencing swift ecological and social changes and transformations. Because we are small, we are efficient and effective, and use less resources compared to most organizations working on similar issues. The feasibility studies developed by UCRISP help communities obtain funds and transform well-established policies, always working toward sustainable outcomes.
