We work across the southeast Asia and Pacific regions, including working in fragile countries and locations, and with organisations from the Australian Government’s Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade to the Asian Development Bank.
Our sector specialisms cover all areas of governance, including public sector governance, public financial management, and law and justice reforms, as well as climate change and disaster risk resilience, monitoring, evaluating and learning, gender, social development, and social protection. We collaborate closely with Oxford Policy Management’s Indonesia, Myanmar, and India offices in the delivery of our work in these countries.
We provide the Australian government’s Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the New Zealand Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade (NZ MFAT) with partnership opportunities that give greater choice of local international development suppliers to support nationally-led solutions.
We have a keen interest in adaptive management - including thinking and working politically and problem-driven iterative adaptation approaches - and facilitation techniques to build local partnerships between funders and governments to achieve impact and sustainable outcomes. We work in a flexible and responsive way with a focus on problem-solving and adaptation to need, and know the importance of ensuring our work is both practically and politically feasible in order to have real long-term impact.
