What We Do
- After decades of neglect, institution building has taken center stage in the field of development. It is now clear, more than ever, that a purely physical approach to development is not sufficient for a nation or business to succeed in building a more sustainable future. Development is about expanding the capacity of people and communities.
- Institutional development requires attention to the soft side of human interaction and community existence. Employing governance, reinventing tradition, modernizing the past, mobilizing social capital, utilizing non-codified knowledge, and creating leaner organizations are all aspects of building effective institutions.
- Caspian Associates is a believer in institution building and sees this as the starting point for more sustainable development. We help clients see the value of their human and territorial assets more clearly than before, enabling them to discover, mobilize, and utilize overlooked assets in their people and communities.
