MEK consultants have considerable experience in the implementation of water and environmental management programs in developmental and transitioning programming settings. Over the years, our consultants have been engaged in several water and environmental sanitation projects internationally, particularly in sub-Sahara Africa, the Caribbean countries, and South-East Asia. We are very knowledgeable about water and sanitation problem design and implementation, and we fully understand the unique challenges of designing, implementing, and managing both small and large-scale water and environmental sanitation projects to realize project objectives and goals. In designing and managing our projects, we ensure that at a minimum we meet and preferably exceed The Sphere Standard’s minimum standards listed in the Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response document.
MEK consultants have carried out baselines studies and utilized applicable assessment tools to determine project requirements and designed projects accordingly. Our team members have the experience and have utilized different participatory methods and procedures for building consensus, developing appropriate promotional materials (health and hygiene education), and construction management, among others, at various stages of project implementation.
MEK staff have been responsible for the planning, scheduling, financial management, design, and construction supervision of the numerous rural and peri-urban water and sanitation projects that we managed. A major ingredient of our project design is sustainability. Toward this end, our consultants have designed and delivered trainings to our counterpart local staff and beneficiaries to enable them to assume ownership and management of the newly constructed water and sanitation facilities.
