Sound and sustainable management of our natural resources - renewable as well as non-renewable - is vital for meeting the needs of society, today and in the future.
Responsible management generates positive social and economic returns while reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, minimising waste and maintaining biodiversity and vital ecosystem functions and services.
We support clients to identify better solutions for utilising and protecting natural resources and ecosystems.
We offer advice, evaluations and reviews of extractive sector issues, applying value-chain approaches to identifying governance and management improvements. Scanteam has carried out global evaluations of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and Norway’s Oil for Development program; country-level policy reviews; and solutions for better company-community relations.
We advise public, civic and private actors on ways to promote sustainable use of renewable resources. This includes advocacy products for increased attention and investments, incentives and market based mechanisms, and mapping of financing sources and mechanisms. Scanteam conducts reviews and evaluation of programmes that promote environment, sustainable livelihoods, and forest and land management.
Climate change and eco-system management.
Scanteam evaluates climate change related programmes and advise on climate finance mechanisms. We also offer studies related to the complexity and interlinked topics of climate change, such as land, forest and water management and food security.
