Despite consistent development effort for several decades, the country’s economic performances have not significantly improved resulting in an increase in the level of poverty. This has been mainly due to the failure both at policy and implementation level to create an environment, which could have catered an effective coalition of physical and infrastructural development with the corresponding human and institutional support from the grassroots to the higher level. A failure to address properly these issues has further hindered in formulating appropriate development strategies suited to the country’s diverse geo-climatic and socio-economic realities. A mistaken notion toward these realities has impeded the country’s economic growth. This has resulted in limited external and internal resources mobilization, which has not addressed the emerging needs to the desired level.
Recent experiences from developing countries indicate that a broad-based, participatory, and sustainable development approach is needed for implementing development effort that ensures optimal mobilization of available resources with higher efficiency resulting in wider human welfare development. In the country’s existing situation, this could only be brought through an integrated and consolidated approach with the development of physical facilities and with the corresponding linkage of socio-economic and institutional factors. The current scenario reveals that existing organizations and institutions delivering services have to be strengthened so as to ensure that the issues are properly addressed for bridging the gap.
Considering this to be a serious gap and services provided in this area is inadequate, Geotech Solutions International (GSI) has been established to face this emerging challenges and to address these issues with the delivery of high quality consulting services in the development, management, operation and maintenance of infrastructures required for the overall development of the country through a judicious combination of “Hardware” and “Software” components.
