ECODIT is an international development ﬁrm working with governments, businesses, and local communities to advance environmentally- and socially-responsible development around the world. We provide technical assistance services ranging from quick-turnaround assessments and evaluations to design and implementation of long-term multi-million dollar projects. Since its founding in 1993, ECODIT has provided more than $70M of professional services through over 250 projects/contracts to diverse clients in more than 40 countries. Building on our track record of success, we have continuously expanded the depth and breadth of our expertise in the water, energy, environment, and urban and local governance sectors.
To serve our clients most effectively, ECODIT has two permanent office locations: one in the Washington, DC area (USA) and one in Beirut (Lebanon). In addition, ECODIT maintains a number of project-dedicated offices around the world; as of July 2017, ECODIT has project offices in Da Nang, Vietnam; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo; and Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Because we care, ECODIT will go the extra mile! We are strongly committed to leaving a lasting legacy beyond the life of project funding provided by our clients and donors. A compelling example of ECODIT's Corporate Social Responsibility ethics is our continuing work with the LMTA, which works to protect, maintain and promote the Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT). ECODIT is proud of having conceived, designed, and implemented the LMT, Lebanon's first long-distance hiking trail, with funding provided by the American people through a Cooperative Agreement with USAID Lebanon (Dec. 2005 – March 2008). Since USAID funding of the LMT project ended, ECODIT has provided hundreds of hours of pro-bono expert advice and technical support to the LMTA, including coaching and mentoring of LMTA staff; assisting with networking efforts at national, regional and international levels; and technical assistance with proposal writing and events organization. ECODIT has also provided guidance on fundraising strategies, full sponsorship for revamping the LMT website, and – together with the Lebanon Ministry of Tourism – sponsorship of a hardcover picture book detailing the first-ever journey on the LMT: A Million Steps - Discovering the Lebanon Mountain Trail.
