Business Lines


Peace and Security

Trias works in partnership with national governments, local authorities and development and humanitarian actors in countries experiencing or emerging from natural or conflict related crisis.

This experience includes countries moving towards peace along the trajectory of dialogue, ceasefire and peace agreements. It also includes working in countries where peace is more elusive. We have worked with international peacekeeping missions and in countries where the military forces are regional or local and where non-state actors are key players. We have experienced the changing nature of conflict, and worked with the institutional structures and instruments developed to assist in these environments.


Recovery and development

We work with national governments, local authorities development partners and the private sector to plan and deliver post-crisis recovery and development. We understand the challenges such transitions can bring in terms of the human and financial capacity necessary to address a range of urgent needs, from improved governance and livelihoods to restoring essential services.

Trias has expertise across both humanitarian and development interventions. We have assisted in developing policies, strategies and programmes that ensure the synergies and linkages between humanitarian and development financing streams and operations.

We believe that international cooperation can bring substantive support to governments experiencing and emerging from crisis. Our experience has shown us that the road to recovery and development requires a strong partnership between public authorities, the private sector and civil society.


Conflict and Environment

We have worked in many countries and regions where competition over natural resources has been a driving factor in instability and crisis. Our experience encompasses competition over minerals, grazing land, and water resources.

Trias recognizes the impacts that climate change is already having in countries experiencing or emerging from crisis, and the future challenges to peace and stability as these impacts become wider and more visible.


Private and Productive Sectors

We recognise that stimulating local and regional economies and promoting inclusive economic growth are essential for peace and stability. This requires a vibrant private sector and both foreign and domestic investment.

Trias works with the public and private sector to promote investment and business, helping to understand and address the challenges and opportunities of doing business in high risk environments, ensuring compliance with all international standards and principles for responsible business, engaging with key stakeholders, and aligning investment and business aims with sustainable peace and development targets.


Analysis and Evaluation

Development interventions must be based on sound analysis of complex environments. As a cross-cutting business line we provide research and practical analysis that shapes policies, strategies and programmes. This analysis can be global, national, sub-national or sectoral.

At the mid or end point of programmes we provide an objective analysis of performance against the defined objectives and outputs. We have particular experience in assessing the continued relevance of operations as situations on the ground evolve and programming modifications become necessary.
