Our Work in West & Central Asia
We need new models of cooperation and trust building between governments and public entities, businesses, communities, civil society organisations, and science
BORDA (Bremen Overseas Research and Development Association), founded in 1977, is a civil society expert organisation focused on the provision of essential public services. In 2012, BORDA began operations in Afghanistan and expanded its activities to Northern Iraq in 2014. The West and Central Asia (WesCA) regional office was established in Jordan in 2016.
Our mission is to improve the living conditions of socially disadvantaged groups while simultaneously maintaining a safe environment through the use and development of renewable energy. The overall goal is to provide access to essential public services such as energy supply, sanitation, wastewater and solid waste management as well as water provision.
We collaborate actively with local communities, governments, UN agencies, INGOs and the private sector to develop a more efficient and coherent water management system. We support holistic approaches to policy formulation, participative urban planning processes, and infrastructure development.
BORDA WesCA contributes to the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation in addition to the New Urban Agenda.
