Our consultants have significant experience conducting qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research. We take care to match the data collections tools we use to suit the particular project or target groups we are working on. This optimises the responses we get and in turn, improves the outcomes we are able to achieve for clients and the communities they work with. 

Climate Change and Sustainability

As the climate changes, and the incidence of extreme weather events increases, environment and sustainability are of increasing important in government and non-government activity, particularly in our Asia Pacific region. Sustineo is committed to supporting national and regional efforts to mitigate climate change and promote sustainable solutions. This has included our recent work with the Asia Pacific Network to build a toolkit for evidence-based climate change adaptation.

Economic Development

Economic development describes the process that governments use to raise the living standard of their nations’ citizens by improving their economic, social and political wellbeing. Sustineo has done a significant amount of work to support organisations working with governments and across regions to promote economic development. These clients include APEC, ASEAN, and UNDP.

Indigenous Development

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have, on average, poorer social outcomes than other Australians in areas including health, education and employment. While this continues, improving the wellbeing of Indigenous people will remain a priority for governments and non-government organisations. Sustineo has worked with several clients in this sector, including the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and the Indigenous Land Corporation.

Rural and Agricutlural Development

Billions of people worldwide live and work in rural environments, relying on subsistence agriculture for survival. As the climate changes, they face increasing challenges in maintaining their wellbeing and livelihoods. Our team have worked with a range of government and non-government organisations in this sector in Australia and our region, as well as producing leading academic works in the area.
