The Players

The contractors- Those that are working in the field in order to implement solutions using their real-world experience in operating in the current setting. They bring various strains of expertise that come together to form the big picture.

 

The local community- Largely speaking, those that are affected by the projects, and those that may forsee or have reservations about the project. Are usually participative and help to implement projects to ensure self-sustainability.

 

The local government- As with individuals in the local community, may have supporters as well as those that may be opposed based on personal reservations or politically and economically driven reasons.

The Background

The development work done around the world is widely regarded by the actors and implementors as a good that cannot be disputed; one that is wholly accepted and applauded. However, this assumption fails to consider the underlying realities of the world we live in, fails to regard the immediate and ripple effects of these newly developed channels.

The Story 

Stable Outcomes has been working in collaboration with many international and local actors in the field in order to implement solutions to new and very real oncoming problems. The success of these efforts lies in the ability to understand the reservations of those that may be affected, but also to promote a vision of a better world, as currently, with the carbon-negative biomass energy project in the West African village of Kwendin, Liberia.
