- Who We Are
- What We Do
- Strategic Partners
Through a rare combination of capability and experience, we offer the opportunity to reduce operating and project costs, maximise program outcomes, and enhance strategic capability. Sustineo prides itself on being open and flexible in our consulting approach; we aim to listen first and respond, not presume and impose; we work collaboratively with our clients to develop the right approach for each situation, rather than push a pre-determined ‘model’ solution.
Sustineo has five core capability domains:
Social & Economic Development | Monitoring & Evaluation | Research | Policy and Strategy | Organisational Performance and Review
Sustineo is committed to improving the social and economic conditions of people throughout the world. We work collaboratively with our partners to design and implement initiatives that generate sustainable change and improve livelihoods. Our consultants have a breadth and depth of expertise in contemporary best practice approaches to, and building comprehensive evidence bases to support, social and economic policy and development. Examples of our capability relate to socio-economic analysis, poverty assessment, social capital, community development, policy cohesion to address ‘wicked’ problems and the institutional frameworks required to support positive change.

M&E is a specialist area of Sustineo practice. We develop M&E systems, undertake independent evaluations, and provide performance strategy and advice to understand an organisation’s social and economic impact and associated changes. Our experience has shown that these changes are of real interest – they are the reasons why people are passionate about their work. Has the project made a real difference to people’s lives? In what ways has it made a difference? And importantly, how can it make an even bigger difference?

Our consultants have significant experience conducting qualitative and quantitative research and, importantly, in the integration of these methods and in the sequencing of analysis. We match the data collection tools to suit the phenomena being explored and the target groups involved. Our qualitative research capabilities include a range of interviewing techniques, participatory tools and facilitation to collect data. Our quantitative experience includes SPSS and R Statistical Software. We have also a breadth and depth of experience in carrying out mixed-methods approaches to achieve reliability and validity.

A core ideal of Sustineo is to build sustainable approaches to social and economic development. Importantly, one of the essential components to achieve this is strategic policy capability, the challenge in doing this has brought increased recognition of the need to address the full range of economic, social and environmental aspects, rather than siloed approaches. Sustineo consultants and our network of associates are highly experienced in research and consultation to ensure that comprehensive and coherent policy can be developed. We are proficient in adopting effective and productive relationships which are essential to the success of such approaches in today’s complex policy environment.
