The Asper team and associates have a broad range of experience, providing consulting and management services in several key sectors.
Food & Agriculture
Our core expertise is in agri-food and agribusiness, along with proven expertise in food security, irrigation, and watershed management. We provide technical on-farm, off-farm, and online training and coaching for you and your employees, as well as post-harvest management and marketing strategies to help your producers, processors, wholesalers, and retailers not only survive, but more importantly, thrive. We work with individual producers, cooperative, small and medium enterprises, small and growing businesses, multinational companies, donors, and governments to achieve their goals.
Forestry & Nature-based solutions
We help you identify natural species with sustainable commercial and carbon sequestration potential and provide remote sensing and resource mapping to help you understand and define the geographic scope of interventions. We devise the most appropriate solutions at the nexus of your technical, financial, and environmental goals, whether through the restoration of a degraded landscape, sustainable management, or enhancement of existing resources using a smallholder nucleus or out-grower schemes. We analyze the regulatory framework, customary land rights, and lessons learned to create the best possible solution that we feel comfortable implementing, one that we know will cause no harm to the community and environment in which we work. Most importantly, we listen to and talk to forest communities and learn from their practices and traditions, and discuss options for them to fulfill their dream. Yes, we have spent long nights with forest communities talking at the candle light, establishing nurseries and planting trees.
Carbon & Climate
We provide qualitative and quantitative analyses of renewable resources, such as biomass, carbon, and water. After analyzing what resources are available, we look at how our clients can reduce their carbon footprint, adopt more renewable resources, emit fewer greenhouse gases, and provide cleaner water for their communities. We apply the biometric and circular economy principles to the work we do and use internationally recognized tools to value carbon emissions and offsets.
Textile & Garment
Our ready-made garment interventions focus on creating workplace improvement while providing productive, humane, and satisfying employment for people in the communities in which your organization operates. Over the past seven years, we have worked on productivity and HR improvement in dozens of factories, engaged with business services providers to create a garment consulting market and stimulate demand for these consulting services, conducted a 41-month randomized control trial (RCT) with a world-class US-based university, and organized several international events involving multinational companies, business, employers and workers’ organizations and governments from various regions of the globe. We have also created business strategies and conducted a yearly market analysis of the sector, trends, and future growth for several organizations, such as corporations and training centers.
