Our field technicians are members of our partner organizations or local communities who contract with EcoLogic to help us work on our projects together.
Our field technicians are the eyes, ears, hands and hearts of EcoLogic out in the field. All EcoLogic projects have at least one technician dedicated to the site. He or she is usually from the area, and has training and experience in environmental management and community consultation methods. EcoLogic technicians collaborate regularly with the local community and carry out much of the day-to-day project work.
An EcoLogic technician will have significant expertise in his or her site’s project activities, such as how to build a composting latrine, how to inventory the tree species of a forest in order to plan a reforestation project, or how to measure soil fertility and the growing rate of inga trees and corn on an agroforestry plot.
And just as importantly, our technicians have a great passion and commitment to the work they do. They are our best advocates and supporters, and they are integral to EcoLogic’s success!
