ICATALIST is a small start-up company set up in June 2013 specialized in knowledge brokerage and natural
resources management. We have expertise in three main areas: first, policy evaluation having undertaken studies
on both foresight and ex post analysis of policy at different levels (local, national, EU and global) in areas like
irrigation modernisation and the water -food-energy nexus; second, focus on ecosystem services, water
accounting, GIS & remote sensing, and third, support innovation in public institutions in all areas related to water
governance, water users groups, water education, and e-government in relation to socio-ecological systems. We
have had contracts with Repsol, FAO, the University of Wageningen, the European Commission RTD and the
Duero basin agency. We provide direct support to the EIP RiverRes Group on River Restoration looking at
nature based solutions. In particular we will look at the theme of ecosystem based adaptation and Disaster Risk
Reduction. We are currently involved in two EU H2020 Projects related to climate change adaptation (EDUCEN
and BRIGAID). Our background joins environmental sciences and geography, and we feel comfortable at
combining qualitative (human geography) and quantitative issues to address socio-ecological problems.
We bring experience and expertise in strategic policy analysis, qualitative and quantitative research methods, which we combine to analyse specific issues offering integrated analysis.
