"We think of our land and water and human resources not as static and sterile possessions but as life giving assets to be directed by wise provisions for future days."

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT

Resource assessments

Based upon our broad NRM experience, the review of current scientific and management literature and consultation with peers and experts, we aim to provide a mature, comprehensive and an applied perspective on natural resource issues and management options within a relevant social, economic and business context.

Natural asset investment

We have had considerable success in applying process engineering principles to the development of environmental management and business systems including: market based instruments and business systems for investment in conservation on private lands and the SA Biodiversity Assessment Tool (SABAT) a calculator of comparative biodiversity value to underpin such investment decisions; a management framework and decision support system for planning and managing environmental flows; and sophisticated hydrological/water quality and ecological monitoring and evaluation systems.

Project Development

Often the most difficult phase of a new initiative is getting that initial critical traction and maintaining a steady hand on the wheel as things start to accelerate. Our experience in large-scale, multi-dimensional NRM project management can help a project team through the obstacle course that confronts almost all start-ups.

We can provide a comprehensive suite of scoping, feasibility assessment, financial and economic analysis, business case development and project/business planning services to enable a new initiative to win that critical buy-in and investment.

We can be there until you have the project running the way you envisioned it.

We have previously assisted clients to develop business cases for some $170M of investment in NRM project initiatives.

Strategic Planning

The development of policy, strategic planning, project proposals and business initiatives are increasingly demanding robust issues and situational analyses to chart the most appropriate pathway, target resources and identify and manage risks.

We have extensive experience in:

* Business needs / capability / gap analysis
* Risk-assessment and management planning;
* Options assessment & feasibility analysis, for the business of NRM.
