sustainable local structures
Our aim is to bring about a world where all people are able to make their communities comfortable places to live. Places where they can develop their full potential and actively shape their environment – regardless of income, gender, origin, place of residence, culture and religion.
We work with municipalities and local authorities to enable them to provide their citizens with infrastructure facilities for securing livelihoods in liveable spaces. BORDA’s holistic, sustainable urban and regional planning approaches ensure efficient, reliable and affordable water, sanitation and energy services.
We are an internationally recognized civil society expert organization with the deep experience to act as a thought and innovation leader, and the professionalism to serve as a valued partner of political, public, civil society, scientific and private institutions.
