International Assistance

We help nations respond quickly to natural disasters and man-made crises and address the stabilization and long-term development challenges of a globalizing and sometimes unstable world.

Matlock & Associates is committed to helping both donor and developing nations to:

  • Meet emergency humanitarian needs
  • Address state fragility and damaged infrastructure caused by conflict and a lack of access to basic services (e.g. food, water, sanitation and shelter)
  • Build a peaceful, resilient economy by supporting sustainable, democratic-led development and increasing the capacity for self-government by their leaders and populations

Global Humanitarian Support and Disaster Response Services

We help emergency response teams in disaster-affected areas to conduct quick infrastructure damage assessments, determine emergency humanitarian and infrastructure needs, deliver emergency relief supplies and equipment, provide technical assistance such as post-earthquake seismic monitoring, emergency engineering services and infrastructure/building stabilization assessments and more.

We offer emergency procurement, transportation and distribution of immediate relief supplies such as plastic sheeting, water containers, water purification units, blankets and health supplies, as well as the acquisition of emergency rental equipment or leasing of heavy equipment and related services such as ongoing operations and maintenance.

We offer support for relief and rehabilitation activities through partnerships with other implementing organizations, including international and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), UN agencies and international organizations. Examples of other relief operations include: purchasing local relief supplies for populations in remote locations, supporting primary health care programs, implementing cash-for-work activities, providing emergency seeds and tools and rental equipment to displaced farmers and restoring water systems in drought-stricken countries.

Stabilization, Reconstruction and Fragile/Conflict-State Services

We work with host nations and donor states to undertake reconstruction and new construction of key infrastructure and economic support industries for nations at conflict or exiting conflict or instability. These projects may include sectors such as: agribusiness, energy efficiency, financial institutions, manufacturing, municipal infrastructure, also known as public works (including schools, water supply, waste disposal and pollution control services), natural resources, power and energy, property, telecommunications and ICT, tourism and transportation.

In addition, Matlock can provide targeted services focused on human capital development such as:

  • Education, i.e. school construction
  • Health care, e.g., clinics, hospitals and related care services
  • The environment, e.g., climate change programs

International Capacity Development and Building

International Capacity Development and Building

In conjunction with our International Assistance activities above, our capacity building and development services help to complete the international stability support lifecycle. These activities help to assist the host nations in preventing a perpetual dependence on international aid, by strengthening and supporting self -sufficient local capacities.

At Matlock & Associate, we believe that that promoting growing nations current human and institutional capacities, will not only avoid dependency, but better equip developing governments asses and handle issues associated with environmental, economic and social changes. 

In terms of the provision of international development services, Matlock is fully aligned with the values expressed by USAID on its website:

  • "At the core of our mission is a deep commitment to work as partners in fostering sustainable development. Rather than impose, we seek to empower and support through collaboration. We work hand-in-hand with those we seek to assist as well as others striving to support the most vulnerable. Nations and communities must increasingly be able to meet the needs of their citizens whether by providing health care, education, or economic opportunity"

Matlock provides international development and support services that may include:

  • Support to health care infrastructure and the efficiency of supply chain and procurement systems
  • Engagement with host nation governments in fulfilling the goals they have established for education infrastructure, school construction and vocational and education training facilities
  • Providing support to infrastructure projects (of all sizes) within developing countries that help improve their population’s access to water, energy, shelter, sanitation, food and other critical life support services
  • Working with local partners to help build infrastructure to support private sector industry that will sustain their development, grow their economy and make basic living conditions better for their citizens
  • This infrastructure work includes road and bridge construction, culvert and sewer construction, small dams and water management systems, power supply and energy distribution systems, telecommunications and ICT development and irrigation, livestock and agricultural systems
