About us

Projekt-Consult Beratung in Entwicklungsländern GmbH is a German consulting company specialised on implementing international cooperation projects in the field of responsible mining. Founded in 1979, Projekt-Consult has gained a unique experience in its core business area, responsible mining, which encompasses technical solutions, capacity building, and strategic advice on issues such as mineral governance, artisanal and small-scale mining or technical, environmental, and social dimensions of resource extraction.

In this context, the company has implemented technical assistance projects in more than 70 countries. Among the clients are leading development agencies, ministries, and public clients, such as the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR), German International Cooperation (GIZ), or bilateral and multilateral donor institutions, such as the World Bank, Swiss SDC and SECO, DFID, United Nations, European Commission, and regional development banks.

In our projects and studies, we are working in cooperation with stakeholders in government, the private sector, NGOs, and citizens’ groups: In the private sector we focus on producers and mineral traders, as well as on financing agents and the suppliers of mining equipment. Partners from the civil sector are foundations, associations, and umbrella organizations, as well as representatives of mining communities. Our partners in the public sector are mining and geology departments, environmental agencies, local and regional governments, and administrations.

In 2014, Projekt-Consult GmbH became a member of GFA Consulting Group – one of Europe’s leading international development firms.
