Development services for the planet’s most vulnerable communities
MWH, now part of Stantec, has decades of experience providing sustainable solutions to deep-rooted development challenges. We combine global expertise with local knowledge and perspective to help international donors and financial institutions improve the design, implementation, and oversight of economic development and infrastructure programs throughout the world. We strive to be at the forefront of innovative and cost effective approaches that help developing countries achieve more resilient and equitable growth, transition to lower carbon economies, and protect water and other “natural capital” that people depend on for their livelihoods and wellbeing.
Our Core Principles
Our international development team adheres to core principles which reflect our commitment to support the needs and objectives of our development clients and partners.
We support enduring economic growth
We recognize that helping partner countries pursue sustainable, resilient, and inclusive economic growth requires effective stewardship, as well as a commitment to building strong local capacity and a thriving private sector.
We design with community in mind
We understand the importance of effective stakeholder engagement to promote involvement of local partners and foster strong working relationships with key members of government, private sector, and civil society.
We are outcome focused
We approach our work with a keen focus not only on physical outputs, but also on the longer-term social, economic, and environmental outcomes that are inherent to improving quality of life in the communities in which we work.
We integrate sustainable solutions
We see sustainability as an integrated strategy for achieving equitable distribution of social, environmental and economic benefits.
As we merge Stantec and MWH into a combined, global business, we recognize the opportunity we have to help developing communities meet their most vital needs. Together, Stantec and MWH bring significantly more skills, services and expertise to our clients to assist them in addressing the most complex and pressing development challenges around the globe. The strength of our company will always be defined by the caliber and attitude of our staff, working together to better the world in which we live.Alan Krause
