Our Approach

At Sustineo we focus on building and maintain the trust of our clients by proactively and consistently promoting approaches that lead to positive change. Our approach combines the highest standards of professional excellence with a genuine passion for successful outcomes. It is founded on four core ideals…

·       Delivering a bespoke approach. Recognition of the unique context of each project demands a carefully tailored approach that is suited to these distinctive features. We work hard to understand these unique features to design projects that fit these realities.

·       Bringing an interdisciplinary perspective. The most insightful solutions are those influenced by a range of disciplinary traditions. Sustineo uses mixed methods approaches and draws on growing bodies of knowledge in disciplines including sociology, anthropology, economics, gender and development, political science, and environmental and climate sciences.

·       Understanding complexity and fostering clarity in a collaborative way. Sustineo’s approach is inclusive and collaborative to build ownership over projects. Our team is skilled in supporting clients and communities to distil, synthesise and interpret information to support strategy and planning and ensure sustainable outcomes.

·       Building on existing capacity. Sustineo’s approach is to recognise existing strengths and capacities and build on them, rather than introduce completely new systems.
