Despre MKBT

MKBT: Make Better has been working for urban development and regeneration in Romania since April 2014. That is to say that we are drafting, validating and coordinating processes for local development and urban regeneration in order to help as many cities become their best possible version and the best home for their inhabitants.

As a local development advisor, we assist both public and private entities.

We substantiate our work on a thorough understanding of local needs and specificities of the communities we work with. We acknowledge, at the same time, the global inter-connectivity of local challenges. Our proposed solutions are therefore grounded in international best practice, while at the same time capitalizing – in a sustainable and harmonious manner – on local know how and resources.

During the past four years, we worked in over 30 communities in România, supporting local authorities, NGOs and companies alike in getting a better grasp of the communities where they are active and in coming up with the viable strategies, programs and services that would foster the local regeneration and development.

MKBT provides advisory, both at strategic and operational levels, to:

+  Local authorities, in designing and implementing complex urban development and regeneration initiatives for the communities they serve;
+  Private companies, to improve their location decisions, but also better contribute to the welfare of the communities in which they are present;
+  Central authorities, in the elaboration and implementation of policies and programs in support of local communities;
+  NGOs, to improve their program targeting, foster a better understanding of the community needs they serve as well as monitor and evaluate their impacts.
