The WEDC team
The WEDC team is multi-disciplinary, comprising academic, professional and support staff. In addition, we call on the services of associates with specialist expertise who work regularly with us.
We have extensive experience of low- and middle-income countries, facing challenges with solutions that have been proven to work. We update our work continually by new assignments. Many of us have worked professionally in developing countries for government departments, local government, international agencies, non-governmental organizations, and consultants.
