Social Development and Public Health and Survey
Development of society occurs only in fields where that collective will is sufficiently strong and seeking expression. Development strategies will be most effective when they focus on identifying areas where the social will is mature and provide better means for the awakened social energy to express itself. Only those initiatives that are in concordance with this subconscious urge will gain momentum and multiply. We believe that the participatory approach by motivating, preparing and involving people best suited to decide and implement development schemes. Sustainable development is achieved by involving the communities with understanding to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Large scale infrastructure or industrial developments, at the national level or at the state level, always have been seen to incur social issues and associated costs. We assist our Clients in impact assessment studies, enhance social benefits, prepare resettlement & rehabilitation action plans and optimise social costs.
