About CoKnow

As an international consulting agency in the field of environment, development and capacity building, CoKnow Consulting supports the development of tailor-made and demand-oriented solutions for sustainable development. In this context, CoKnow is the short form of the English technical term coproduction of knowledge. Our goal is to support collaborative processes and methods that promote the joint development of knowledge and sustainable solutions. Scientific results have a great potential to solve real-world problems and therefore our priority is the support of dialogues at science-policy and science-society interfaces.


Thematic priorities include environmental protection and nature conservation as well as sustainable development. We pay special attention to issues of sustainable natural resources management in multi-stakeholder settings. By participating in the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), CoKnow Consulting also intends to contribute to initiating debates in society and to highlighting diverse needs for natural resources in order to find solutions for resource conflicts. Our customers are e.g.: scientific institutions, (international) political organizations, environmental and nature conservation associations, companies and ministries.


Summarizing, we offer personal consulting services for projects built in competence-based trainings and participate in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research.
