Research & Consultancy

Come to us when your need is someone who can find out, analyse and report in a practical, useable way on a topic at the interface of people, land and water.

We provide research, needs analysis, participatory evaluation, training, extension and environmental education programme design and technical writing services.

Who we work with

We work with councils, iwi and hapu organisations, industry organisations, educators, government departments, companies and not-for-profits.

Our research methods are firmly grounded in participatory processes, enabling those affected to be involved in a research project or investigation.

We can apply these social research processes to ensure that all voices are heard, and to help organisations better tailor their services to their client group.

We ensure our reports and resources are easy to understand, bringing to this skills in technical writing and journalism.
