Chemonics works with stakeholders at global, national, regional, and local levels to strengthen and improve water, energy, and urban services, sector policies, laws, and regulations. Our multisectoral approach allows us to build human and institutional capacity, apply clean technology solutions, improve utility management, and facilitate infrastructure finance.
Reform, Institutional Strengthening, and Utility Management: We work with partners to develop policy, legal, regulatory, and commercial reforms that improve governance. Using an approach that leverages private sector participation and investment, we enhance the operational and commercial performance of public and private sector institutions, including utilities.
Service Delivery and Infrastructure: We strengthen utility and service providers to improve the delivery of energy, water, and urban services in urban, peri-urban, and rural communities. Working at the policy, organizational, and community levels, we support infrastructure development, finance and management, private sector participation, and the application of new technologies.
Low Carbon Growth: Our projects help countries reduce their carbon emissions and address climate change by using low emissions development strategies. We design and implement programs that effectively integrate renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives.
Rural Clean Energy: We design and implement off-grid renewable energy solutions for rural populations.
Sanitation and Public Health: Recognizing the link between water, sanitation, and good health outcomes, we incorporate health and hygiene behavior change communications, nutrition and child health integration, and community-based sanitation into our program designs.
Water Governance: We help governments ensure that services are accessible and affordable by making public planning and investment transparent as well as improving the effectiveness of related regulatory bodies. Our approach boosts the accountability of service providers and also emphasizes trans-boundary cooperation and resource-based conflict mitigation when needed.
