Will Allen

I am an independent systems scientist, action researcher and evaluator, with 30 years of experience in sustainable development and natural resource management. Most of my work takes place in participatory and learning-based contexts, to help stakeholders develop a shared understanding around goals, actions and indicators.

A framework developed through practice

The site framework has been developed through the course of my work – which looks to support policy and management initiatives that are outcome focused – and involve constructive engagement, co-design, adaptation and reflective practice.

Will Allen & Associates provide an experienced research and consulting team that can help you put these approaches into practice.

We’d love to hear from you

You are welcome to get in touch with me for further information about any of the topic areas covered in the website. I am also interested to share ideas, or discuss a potential involvement, with teams and organizations looking to use outcomes-oriented, participatory and collaborative approaches more effectively.
