The ETC-Africa Team, headed up by Duncan Pritchard has over 20 years of practical on the ground, operational experience with a unique blend of NGO, corporate and community level expertise. Project experience includes working with multinational extractive industries, United Nations, non-profit organizations, SMME’s, community groups and local government networks. ETC-Africa has extensive experience across Sub Saharan Africa in work ranging from specialist biodiversity surveys, environmental planning, feasibility studies, carbon management strategies and community tourism / responsible tourism projects.
We believe in innovative ideas, going beyond expectations and making a positive impact on your business and our environment. We provide a broad range of services from “Green business” / Carbon Footprint management, eco-tourism route development, environmental planning, community liaison and responsible tourism/ecotourism consulting.
ETC-Africa has what is probably one of the world’s most experienced teams when it comes to tourism route development, especially with regards to creating socio-economic benefits from tourism in rural communities through the co-operative approach of tourism routes. We have worked on developing tourism routes as far afield as Australia, Canada, Mexico and across southern Africa.
We recognize the trend for consultants to produce intricate plans and documents that have little long-term value. Associated with this is the inevitable challenge in implementing these plans and taking positive steps forward. As a result, our project teams all have on the ground practical industry experience resulting in practical, well thought out and implementable products. We prefer to follow projects through from the concept phase through to implementation. We guarantee ongoing support, advice and mentorship wherever needed to ensure your project is a success and makes a difference to people’s lives, your business and the environment.
