NIRAS has maintained a continuous and growing presence in Africa for the better part of 50 years. Today we have a regional Head Office in Kenya and country offices in Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia as well as representatives in Bénin, Burkina Faso, and Uganda. This strong commitment to the continent, supported by our local presence, allows us to connect deeply with our work and ensure the best possible project implementation from inception to completion. We draw directly on our experience as a Nordic firm to bring principles of transparency and sustainability to our assignments around the world, leading to better outcomes for the communities with whom we work.

In this brochure, you will learn about the many ways NIRAS engages with and learns from our partners. It is our belief that constant improvement is the foundation for building sustainable societies, and we incorporate that principle into every project in which we engage. We are committed to the achievement of the SDGs and will continue to collaborate with governments, donors, private sector, and most importantly, local communities to ensure a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous future for generations to come.
