Who We Are & What we are doing

Solutions for Sustainable Societies (Tri-S)  is an initiative works with a network of partners to improve the livelihood styles and build  circular green economy that enhances the sustainable consumption and production around Yemen.

Established in 2019, the Initiative supports agriculture development, sale, distribution, and consistent use of clean energy products and other solutions that transform lives by improving health, protecting the environment, creating jobs, and helping consumers save time and money.

How We Do It

The Initiative is focused on four core pillars to help the communities improving their lifestyle and creating sustainable environment:

Climate Change & Environment

Protecting our environment is the key to the existence of life on earth, so that we are fighting against environment change, global warming, excessive pollution, etc.

Livelihood Improvement

Improve the lives of people in rural areas by solving issues skillfully using the limited resources available and enabling rural residents to take possession of the activities to devise and implement solutions.

Youth and Women Empowerment

Contribute towards the reduction of unemployment, among the youth and women, through capacity building and the creation of employment opportunities.


Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Develop and launch new products and services with a sustainable business models and Support innovation labs by identifying more effective solutions that add value for the people affected by development challenges.

Our Solutions

In this program we are organizing teaching sessions in colleges, high schools, schools of higher education, and any workplace that requests them. These sessions include dynamic workshops, thoughtful debates, and external pursuits.

We also prioritize developing an active and interactive educational approach to cultivate content adapted for our audience and the specifics of the activity, which can include organizing or participating in events and getting involved in performances with theater troupes and artists.



Enabling families and societies to turn organic waste into renewable energy

A better life for 1500 rural households in Yemen through implementation of small-scale biogas plants is the ambitious target of this project; the small plants will be made locally by implementation of our engineering knowledge and our team skills.

Two major problems we are solving; one is the household organic waste, which emits significant amounts of methane gas, that’s a major contributor to climate change. The other major problem we are solving is indoor air pollution, Over 3 million people still cook over open fire and many people die every year from its exposure. In May 2017 WHO has registered cases of Cholera nearly 23,500 in Yemen, The waste organic fractions that openly dumped and their emissions is a main reason. It concluded that, the need for biogas in Yemen in terms of its potential contribution to development, energy, health and environment, is very great.


Livelihood development and improvement of agricultural production

An integrated program for small farmers to improve their skills and abilities and helping them by building a milieu of investible sustainable agriculture businesses capable of answering the demand with affordable, high-quality, appropriate crops.

The program activities will improve livelihood styles and build a circular green economy that enhances the sustainable consumption and production and increase their ability to face the country circumstances.

Our Impact

The Initiative has developed strategies that both improve utilization of sustainable energy as well as strengthen supply chains and markets for cleaner energy over time.
