Our Services

Water

LTS International provides specialised consulting services to the water sector through intelligent and innovative approaches that are grounded in extensive knowledge and practical understanding. Our research and development activities mean we can bring to the client state of the art responses and a broad professional practice. An obvious benefit of this approach is that we can catalyze innovative responses to complex interdisciplinary natural resource management challenges through a team based approach.

For example: good forestry practice brings major benefits to hydrology in the form of blue and green water, whilst at the same time sequestering carbon and conserving biodiversity. Those benefits are relevant to a very broad set of stakeholders and represent a form of optimising natural resource management.  Through developing the concept with stakeholders and supporting behaviours that shift from competitive to cooperative strategies, new and alternative scenarios of water resource use can be considered. These provide entry points to realise equitable utilisation and effective water sharing.

Much of LTS’ work on climate change and governance calls for integrated thinking across the disciplines, including water science.   Water security is a fundamental aspect of successful adaptation to climate change and our expertise in water resource management now means that we can address the challenge of adaptation based on a robust knowledge of operational and strategic water management in Africa.  Similarly, LTS’ work and experience on water governance in sub-Saharan Africa cross-fertilises our other work streams enhancing   our ability to advise, design, manage and evaluate effective and sustainable governance interventions
