The development divide between urban, better developed areas and rural, pristine areas is frequent as the latter do not receive the leading edge technologies and focussed result-orientation that the former receive. Pragya is a pioneer in closing this gap. The Pragya team is multidisciplinary, a mix of specialists from the varied fields of agriculture, botany, engineering, management, design, museology, geography and anthropology. We integrate in our team training in social research, experience in development projects, and outstanding analytical and change management skills. A team with a business mind-set in its development work, Pragya members ensure a focus on things like performance, viability and effectiveness while addressing development issues. The common thread that binds this diverse and talented team is a strong sense of commitment towards equitable and appropriate development of indigenous peoples and pristine regions of the world.
