ECAS seeks to bridge the gap between research-policy-practice nexus. We focus on specific themes and methodological issues (scenarios and modeling, Impact, Strategies and Sustainability etc).

We undertake research assignments based on an ideology that information leads to knowledge and knowledge is power. Our researchers are well versed in research design and implementation as ell as knowledge management which enables them to go beyond just collecting data. We undertake informed analysis and give practical recommendations based on the research findings.

Given its strategic nature and the benefits the environmental sector stands to accrue, ECAS recognizes that successful research projects are results of having competent teams with necessary competencies and tools to service the needs of the project in an effective, efficient and timely manner without compromising on both quality and content.

Our researchers are drawn from various disciplines of specialization including: water, forestry, waste, land, wildlife, policy, climate change, marketing, IT, financial management and human resources. As a result of their exposure to, and relationships with numerous organizations, our consultants are aware of industry "best practices". In the consultancy and research process, we engage clients and guide their teams on a comprehensive approach to improving the Value Realization of their products and services.

We come up with innovative solutions that help us in developing win-win policies through rigorous research and data-based analysis. Our team conducts surveys, does analysis and produces data in order to frame watertight reports that help in awareness generation for the media and the masses and also enable the government, policy-makers and think tanks to devise sustainable solutions.

Climate change and livelihoods
Climate impacts assessments
