Our consulting work takes many forms. Working with funders and implementing agencies we advise on strategy, providing guidance on how to adapt their approach to achieve greater, more sustainable impact. We undertake scoping missions and design new initiatives. We review and evaluate existing initiatives.

In every case, we consider our involvement on the basis of the potential to exert positive and important influence.
