GRET provides expertise alone or as part of a consortium with organizations from both developing and developed countries. Its approach combines the social sciences and exact sciences, based on the results of applied research and pilot development experiments. This approach and its excellent knowledge of the field give GRET true added value as a development expert.
GRET provides different types of expertise:
- “projects and organization”: feasibility, monitoring, assessment, organizational support, institutional support, etc.;
- “policy”: sectoral or international development policy definition support; and
- “scientific knowledge”: economics, engineering, agronomy, anthropology, sociology, etc.
This provision of expertise allows GRET to transmit its skills and acquire new skills in order to stay at the cutting edge of development innovation. Expertise missions are primarily conducted by GRET’s experts, whenever appropriate soliciting outside experts, individual consultants and/or partner organizations.
