Saana Consulting is not the usual development consultancy. We aspire to look beyond conventional practices to ensure our clients receive the best possible outcomes for their projects in trade & regional integration, aid effectiveness and intellectual property. Our aim is to make development work better.
Above all, Saana is driven by positive, sustainable results. We typically work in small custom-built teams to provide our clients – DFID, EC, Danida and the World Bank to name a few – with individually tailored outcomes and innovative, ground-breaking solutions. We invest time and resources to get to know our clients, understand the key issues, and build ownership with stakeholders.
