ADI as partners in development facilitates an alternative paradigm of development that values appreciating people’s basic potential to lead the process of socio-economic change. We value livelihood promotion and environmental resource management as an instrument to build leadership and entrepreneurial skills of individuals, communities, systems and institutions.
Development is a challenging paradigm. The task is very large and one’s contribution is miniscule. Promoting sustainable development for the larger society remains key challenge in development policy and action. ADI aims to improve the lives and future prospects of society as a whole. The organisation envisages to bring about people centered development by fostering institutional linkages, technology transfer, technological innovation and experiments, demonstrate new ideas, promote new approaches, mobilize resources, demystify concepts and technologies, mediate to bring about collaboration, and impart skills and foster conditions for reflection and learning. ADI is committed to bring larger impact through strategic partnerships. A step towards government, private sector and civil society partnerships are providing new perspectives to address the issue of scale and sustainability.
The basic thrust of all our interventions seeks to provide holistic development with an integrated approach to the management of environmental resources. Sustainability and self- actuation with eco-preservation calls for a self-discipline. ADI seeks to provide the total system approach with technology, as a tool to sustain the value system enshrined in the constitution. Being a facilitator, it resolves to catalyse change and expand the capabilities of people and institutions.
