We bring proprietary analytical frameworks that can be tailored to specific needs
Our expertise covers:
Institutional design: where our insights in financial markets and mechanism design have informed policies to introduce competition in network sectors
Market models: where natural capital valuation frameworks have been used to incentivise the provision of eco-system services
Economic regulation: where our econometric modelling frameworks, including spatial models, have been used to set utility customer bills by estimating efficient costs
Policy impact assessment: where our market and macroeconomic models have exposed the effects of reforms on sectoral profitability along value chains, consumer prices, and macroeconomic growth
Investment planning: where our models to generate spatially explicit climate and socio economic scenarios have been used to plan the expansion of networks and generate adaptive resource management plans.
We have a leading track record of advising corporates, governments and international institutions on policy design and of assisting corporates on how to engage with the policy agenda
We have applied our extensive competitiveness toolkit for governments across the world. We leverage our cross sectoral knowledge base to design policy instruments which facilitate a broad-based transition towards sustainable growth and development. Our policy insights have also guided multinational companies to assess risks and opportunities so they can make informed investments in new and existing markets.
