- the environment, natural resource management and mining;
- industrial engineering, essentially in agribusiness and fertiliser chemistry;
- infrastructures, transport, urban planning, energy and telecommunications;
- good governance and public management, management of the economy, strengthening of the legislative framework and legal system;
- education, vocational training and social development;
- health and social policy;
- the development of the private sector.
Our innovative vision of development assistance, the multisectoral and multicultural experience of our different professions, our proven capacity to implement complex, technical assistance projects developed over 45 years, and our decisive participation as a vector for sustainable change in transition and developing countries, have enabled us to become a privileged partner of the major international cooperation and development aid institutions, particularly the European Commission, the World Bank, regional development banks and bilateral donors.
SOFRECO also works directly with private clients in the fields of chemicals, fertilisers, agribusiness and agriculture.
Constantly expanding, SOFRECO has carried out more than 2500 assignments in over 150 countries in Western and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Turkey, the Caucasus, North Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, East and South Africa, Central and South Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Pacific, in close collaboration with institutional beneficiaries, the private sector and civil society.
