2012- Nigeria Government of Imo State

Creation, implementation and operation of Waste Management in Imo State, Nigeria. Presently there is hardly any organized and environmentally friendly management of wastes in Imo State Nigeria. The project aims to establish an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable waste management system all over Imo State.

Waste flux calculation are based population estimations based on remote sensing, while waste logistics are based on GIS based fractal modeling.

2011- 12 Lebanon UNDP Lebanon

Evaluation of Flood Project I in the Baalbacek-Hermal region. The draught prone region’s occasional rain events cause sever flush flooding events, while desertification, loss of top soil, overgrazing are threatening the livelihood of the locals. Measures have been implemented for water retention capacity for the region moreover a water harvesting pond and efficient drip irrigations has been created in order to protect the environment while stepping towards a sustainable development.

The assignment was to evaluate the project as per The World Bank requirements and provide lesson-learnt advices for the participants.

Water quantity and run-off estimations are based on various satellite imagery and available mappings and other information as weather data are transformed into a single GIS based database on which modeling is based.

2010 Albania UNDP Albania

„Evaluation of the soil erosion measures in Albania“ financed by UNDP via GEF Climate Change projects. Our task was to evaluate the soil erosion measures, which was founded by UNDP. As no baseline date was available, natural erosion, baseline erosion and present erosion rates have to be determined. The project was a community-based actions on erosion via improvements on their crop diversity, productivity and agricultural methods, via cheek dams, small scale reservoirs, efficient irrigations etc.. Also the cost efficiency of the measures has to be determined, while our finding was presented in lesson-learnt awareness raising event for the participants of the project.

Water quantity and run-off estimations are based on various satellite imagery and available mappings and other information as weather data are transformed into a single GIS based database on which modeling is based.

2010 Hungary SwissAid

Evaluation of water related project ideas for SwissAid. Our job was identified feasible projects, which could receive SwissAid fundings.

2009- 12 Libya OiLibya – Libya

„Due Diligence Study Phase 1 and 2 for the OiLibya“ filling stations in Libya. 1st time ever Due Diligence Study for the oil company, which serves all over in Libya with 151 filling stations nation wide. Our job was identified the environmental liabilities of the company and promote environmental awareness.

Web based secure GIS database where invented from 0 information as even the number of the filling stations were unknown. Bynow 3000 element database is in use for various environmental and heath and safety purposes.

2009 Hungary Hungarian Academy of Sciences

As the part of WateRisk Project, we have conducted a research on available Climate Change Scenarios for the Carpathian Basin. A comprehensive analysis was made to evaluate their methods and findings.

2007- 09 Hungary EU Cohesion Fund Central Directorate for Water and Environment – Pelso 2007 Consortium Aquaprofit Zrt.

„Kis-Balaton Project“ is a Ramsaari site and a Natural Park, also part of the EU Natura 2000 areas. This is biggest sweet water wetland in Europe, our project was to ensure its natural beauty and wide biodiversity, and also preserving the water quality of Lake Balaton from eutrophic state. The design cost of the project was more then 2 million EUR. Our job was to create a Environmental Impact Assessment, a Feasibility Study, Cost-Benefit Analysis and the Application Form and Tender Documentation for EU funding. Among the issues watershed management with erosion control was examined for optimal solution.

Probably the mostly examined area of the earth, although the information was not in an organized and comparable format. First of all information was transferred into a common GIS database. Then information gaps were indentified, during the EIA and flow model measurement tasks various remote sensing methods were used from satellite to low level ortho-photo data collection campaigns, with in-situ verifications and calibrations. Based in the collected data ecological, environmental, water quality and flow modeling were made in order to find the best possible solution. Moreover a wide spread continues monitoring network were set in order to collect information for rapid and long term operation of the reservoir system, which part of a Natural Park.

2007- 09 Hungary EU Cohesion Fund Central Directorate for Water and Environment Duna Consortium / Aquaprofit Zrt.

„Danube Project” Improvement of the flood protection of the Danube Valley in Hungary. Due to changes in the upper watershed the flood curves has been changed in the recent years. 200 km of dike and 21 structures has been renewed our newly constructed. Our job was to create the Environmental Impact Assessment, Feasibility Study, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Tender Documentations. Among the issues watershed management, climate change and biodiversity issues were considered.

Due to the enormous amount of information GIS based info system were used.

2007- 09 Hungary EU Cohesion Fund Central Directorate for Water and Environment Szamos-Kraszna Consortium / Aquaprofit Zrt.

„Szamos-Kraszna Reservoir project”. The project is part of the Vásárhelyi Plan, where 12 emergency reservoirs are being designed to lower the extraordinary floods of the Tisza River, while keeping water for the dry sunny months of the draught torn region. Our job was to create a Environmental Impact Assessment, a Feasibility Study, Cost-Benefit Analysis. Among the issues watershed management with erosion control, biodiversity and climate change issues were examined for optimal solution.

2008- 10 Hungary EU Cohesion Fund Northern and Southern Great Plain Development Agency / Aquaprofit Zrt.
