OIKO LOGICA stands for “common sense of the habitat”. The word OIKO comes from OIKOUMENE, Ecumene, a term originally used in the Greco-Roman world to refer to what back then was the inhabited universe. Oikouménë in old greek is oikéö, “to inhabit”, the “inhabited world”. The Barbarians inhabited the rest of the world.

OIKO LOGICA was born to make sense of the inhabited world, even though today, it seems that our planet is much more inhabited by Barbarians…

We use Earth Science technology to improve the quality of life in our world, especially the economic livelihood opportunities of the world's most vulnerable populations and the sustainable use of the natural resources of our planet. Our work is divided in six main program areas- Climate Adaptation, Climate Mitigation, Ecosystems, Natural Resources, Poverty & Livelihoods and Climate Services.
