GOPA Infra GmbH is an independent international consultancy rendering engineering and consulting services for infrastructure development worldwide on behalf of bilateral and multilateral financing agencies and organisations as well as for private clients. It focusses on the provision and operation of sustainable infrastructure in the core areas of Architecture & Urban Development, Transport & Mobility, Waste Management as well as Water & Sanitation. Particular technical expertise is used for projects that deal with climate change, post-conflict situations and migration.
In October 2016, the company was created through the merger of GOPA Consultants’ Infrastructure Development Department and RODECO Consulting GmbH, which was established in 1973. It thus builds on more than 45 years of experience and functions as an independent company within the GOPA Consulting Group with its headquarters in Germany and branch offices in Burkina Faso, Georgia, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Mali, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Uganda & Zambia.
Our strong relationships with German universities, scientific institutions and professional associations enable us to provide our clients with the latest scientific results and state-of-the-art technology. We have a track record in handling projects according to international standards and ensuring coordination with all relevant stakeholders. We provide target-oriented and efficient cooperation with national authorities and administrations, local engineering companies, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), international institutions and private entities, thus creating a sound foundation for the achievement of sustainable project results and impacts.
GOPA Infra follows an integrated approach in order to ensure the sustainability of its projects. The assignment of multi-disciplinary teams of international and local experts in the projects safeguards the development of demand-oriented and integrated solutions. In addition, particular attention is paid to regional and cultural nuances while emphasis is placed on participatory approaches, when requested, involving the target groups from an early stage of a project.
