who we are
Difaf is an environmental consultancy and a technical design bureau born in 2014 in Lebanon and formed by a team of engineers, scientists, and policy experts. Our guiding objective is to produce and sustain measurable improvements in status of water and environmental resources.
how we work
We are eager to deliver proficient cross-disciplinary work for scalable environmental solutions that are economically, socially, and technically feasible through 1) rigorous scientific and qualitative assessments of natural and social systems, 2) tailored designs and appropriate selection of technical solutions, 3) flawless project implementation and adequate supervision, 4) transparent monitoring and evaluation of key indicators and, 5) excellent project management and conscientious hand-overs.
Water connects us all! In order to promote the restoration and proper management (sustainability) of natural resources, we believe that human and natural systems are fundamentally interlinked. Therefore, complementary with its technical edge, Difaf is ready to employ participatory methods for engaging various actors to reach a balance between bottom-up and top-down developmental goals. Difaf is experienced to collaborate with municipalities and local actors, with central government and with international NGOs alike.
Our services range from field assessments and feasibility studies to procuring complete turn-key solutions targeting sectors where the largest impacts on the environment are found: fresh water resources, wastewater, agriculture, and natural resources management. With rigorous ground assessments, high proficiency in project management, and specialized international partnerships, Difaf focuses on tailoring designs instilled with scientific vigor and supported by practical follow-up mechanisms, giving more meaning to the word “sustainability”.
