About FECT

We have undertaken Climate & Environmental research, implemented climate adaptation projects, developed infra-structure for research and trained over a score of personnel since 1997. To sustain these advances, we instituted the Foundation for Environment, Climate and Technology (FECT) as a non-profit company in 2003. FECT contributes to climate, hydrology, adaptation, information technology, social sciences and engineering for sustainable development. Our charter requires us to work towards societal welfare without private profit.
