Welcome to LISD


The Liechtenstein Institute for Strategic Development GmbH is a professional and scientific organisation specialising in the design, development and regeneration of cities and urban areas: industrial, commercial, industrial. We base our work on serving people, communities, cities and companies by delivering renewable energy based, water sensitive and carbon negative solutions. We research, we advise, we train and we facilitate change through assisting with securing sustainable finance. Locally and globally. We believe in the regenerative stewardship of our forests, grasslands, wetlands, water systems and agriculture to not only be sustainably productive for human use but also absorb and manage excess atmospheric greenhouse gases and secure all flora, fauna and microbial biodiversity.


We deliver climate stabilising and resilient strategies. We have developed effective Rapid Regenerative Infrastructure Deployment (RRID) method by integrating science, engineering, economics and finance with city, regional and infrastructure design, community planning and development.


We work for individuals, community groups, cities, towns, regional organisations, international organisations and private institutions that are focused on sustainable infrastructure, urban and regional development. All of our projects are executed with the utmost care, energy and attention to the need of our partners and clients. Each approach is tailored to suit specific needs and objectives, using global best practice and expertise.



Local and international experts form our core, provide guidance and leadership. They work together in sourcing and managing projects, based on tailored agreements. Our experts have worked with regions, cities and towns, local, state and national governments, the IEA, IPCC, UNDP, UNECE, UN Habitat and a number of other international organisations.


Our projects squarely engage the strategic future of cities, regions and communities. We develop and carry out:

  • regenerative urban designs,
  • sustainable land use and development plans,
  • energy autonomous and water sensitive urban design strategies,
  • sustainable urban governance and policy studies,
  • community involvement and participation processes, and
  • communication and publication projects.

We also manage complex research, development and design projects involving large and small groups of diverse participants.
