We undertake consultation and research to investigate and understand the social dimensions of environmental issues.
Aranovus Research focuses on people. People and communities are increasingly engaging with environmental issues and not only want their voice to be heard, they want to be part of the solution. This can be a challenge for organisations, policy-makers and environmental managers who have to juggle the interests of many stakeholders. Well founded information gathered independently removes perceptions of bias, reduces tension in relationships and often identifies a smoother way forward.
We have the skills and experience to provide clients with a clear understanding of how people perceive and engage with environmental matters that are important to them. Our community survey techniques provide clients with a snapshot at a point in time, we undertake community consultation to engage people as part of the process and our impact assessments provide insight into the potential impacts of policy options. Our communication skills help make information readily accessible. For large or longer term projects our social research experience provides a robust investigative framework to support complex decision-making.
If your project requires input from people and communities, our social research skills and experience will provide the information you need.
