SHER has been resolutely committed to the preservation of biodiversity and the sustainable management of natural resources. Our expertise is based on an integrated, participatory approach. It combines knowledge of ecosystems with innovative solutions. We strive to develop tailor-made tools for reasoned ecosystem management.

Developing tools for informed natural resource management

Maintaining a balanced ecosystem requires a holistic approach. This approach must integrate the multiple facets impacting biodiversity. SHER combines technical expertise and ecosystem knowledge to create accurate information databases characterizing the natural resources. We develop digital tools for efficient management and decision support, from biodiversity information systems to master plans for protected areas.

Biodiversity-friendly infrastructure design

SHER integrates infrastructure and bioengineering expertise to design solutions adapted to protected areas and their surroundings. Our approach aims to guarantee access to clean energy, encourage wildlife hydraulics(??) and promote responsible ecotourism, while preserving biodiversity and natural resources.

Priority to sustainable socio-economic solutions

 We give priority to solutions that have a positive impact on the local populations. Our aim is to ensure the sustainability of investments and to maximize the socio-economic benefits. SHER has a network of experts working across diverse landscapes and supporting the conservation, protection and even restoration of ecosystems.
