Our Areas of Specialization
DevPar is committed to the provision of services in each of the core areas of specialization,
even though we may also provide other services as well. These core specializations are as follows:
Each of these areas of specialization is explained separately on
its own page within this web site and can be accessed by clicking
on the name listed above.
There are certain important common characteristics
to the work we perform in all areas. One is that we are focused
on knowledge and skill transfer and the building
of local capacity within the client organization. We want
a "partnership" relationship with our clients in these
situations. Another is that we seek to adapt concepts
and technical solutions from developed countries to suit the implementation
environment of developing countries, consistent with basic standards
and international norms where they apply. Our desire is for the
beneficiary client to be the winner from all of
our work measured in terms of enhancements and benefits conferred.
Our emphasis on "partnerships" in development work is
derived from experience that clearly indicates that different kinds
of inputs are required for projects to achieve superior results.
In some cases, the participation of NGOs with us can produce better
results. In other cases, the involvement of managers and/or staff
from Western organisations, businesses or institutions will be effective
in capacity building. Local experts can also be a key ingredient
to projects to provide a thorough understanding of the cultural
context for the work and for providing local language skills. Local
firms can also provide continuity in the future when they have been
involved in the early work.
Assignments have been carried out in a wide range of development
regions and under several language environments. Refer to our project
experience by clicking the appropriate specialization at the top
