Advisory Services


With support from contributions and donors, we are here to help communities and small businesses design and implement projects to achieve sustainability goals and activities. 


Our cost-effective services help projects reach goals of sustainable community development with focus, passion and effective training.  Our work places an emphasis on relieving poverty and applying creative solutions to improve livelihoods and preserving ecological and cultural heritage.

Strategic Planning

SRDI Turkey Strategic Planning Focus Group

SRDI helps develop integrated strategic plans that build clarity and consensus for future success.  We tie together objectives with the actions and resources needed to reach the goals.  Our own BSST Program is based on a systematic process that identifies the reality of the situation on the ground and uses that information for successful plan implementation. At the same time, our approach is flexible because the social, political and economic environments can change quickly, requiring adaptation to maintain a successful project.

Capacity Building


The knowledge and experience levels in a community determine its member’s ability to effectively design and implement a plan to achieve sustainability goals.


SRDI helps to identify the gaps and weaknesses in a community so that an effective plan of action can be developed that provides training and improves capacity to attain practical, achievable results.

Project Implementation


Aside from our own social enterprise work, coupled with targetted training to improve skills, SRDI can provide the design and put into practice a wide array of sustainable programs whether it involves environmental, social or cultural initiatives.  We know the importance of involving local stakeholders so that any plan is locally owned and work with the community to develop sound monitoring and evaluation platforms to measure progress.
