Haraya believes that a vision can only be achieved and sustained through planning with an ecosystem lens – a holistic view that recognizes the interdependence of all elements in the planning space. Haraya identifies and examines these elements and their relationships using a data-driven and participatory approach – an approach that values facts, including the knowledge and thoughts of all stakeholder groups gathered through dialogues, group discussions, and observation.

Then, we plan how these elements and relationships can be enhanced or managed better to achieve the community or organization’s vision. We devise solutions that value biodiversity, ecosystem flows and environmental quality; human rights, protection of vulnerable groups,  and social welfare; dynamic and sustainable economies; and resilience to disasters. This is made possible by our team of managers and consultants with diverse educational and professional backgrounds.
