So Carthago Consultancy helps regional, national and international parties identify the challenges and develop action plans to address the issues involved. The strategies developed to meet the challenges have to be robust enough to contend with the contingencies that will inevitably surface.
The methods used this purpose include Integrated Water Resources Management, System Analysis and Dynamics, Rapid Assessment Modelling and Serious Gaming. Carthago Consultancy has an extensive national and international network and offers services and expertise in both independent and collaborative projects."
