What we do

Takin consulting specialises in natural resource (forests, wildlife, land-use), and more broadly, environmental (including climate change) governance.


Our approach builds on an in-depth understanding and experience of international, regional and bilateral environmental policy, legal agreements and other multilateral frameworks (such as the UNFCCC, the CBD, CITES, and the EU FLEGT).


Our team has experience working in numerous countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, where we closely collaborate with national and sub-national governments as well as non-state actors to implement international rules and initiatives and improve national and sub-national policies and laws.


Our team also has significant experience carrying out strategic environmental and social impact assessments (SESA) for multilateral financial institutions such as the World Bank and designing environmental and social management frameworks (ESMF), grievance redress mechanisms (GRM), and monitoring and evaluation frameworks to assess their implementation.


Other expertise/services provided include:

  • Legal and policy research and analysis

  • Project evaluation and due diligence

  • Capacity building, including design of tools such as e-learning courses
