Using data-driven approaches we support donors, and governments to understand sector growth and enhance competitiveness, attract investment and promote trade
We support decision makers through the projectlifecycle, from strategy and business case development, to implementation and SMART evaluation.
Our team has a long track record of combining evidence from disparate sources to provide a clear understanding of critical issues and make practical recommendations
We combine cutting–edge evaluations of extensive data sets with bespoke modelling and systematic stakeholder consultations to ‘ground truth’ our assumptions and validate our results. Our team draws on experience of working with both the public and private sectors to ensure efforts to promote private-sector led growth are relevant and additional.
We use multi-criteria, meta-analytical frameworks to help our clients understand and prioritise barriers to growth, sectors with high growth potential and policy responses
We have proprietary models, including our dynamic prosperity toolkit, Investment Impact Model (IIM), gravity (trade) model and in-house CGE model (ViEW) which enable us to evaluate the short- and long-term effects of policy change and business responses. Our investment climate and supply chain diagnostic frameworks, which draw on innovative methods such as complexity analysis, help us map the challenges and opportunities for sustainable and inclusive growth. Our capabilities include cash flow modelling, allowing us to test the impact of financial, fiscal and non-financial support mechanisms on entrepreneurial incentives. Our work plans and methodologies align with HM Treasury Green Book requirements, with outputs tailored to target audiences, whether these are policy makers, practitioners or the wider community.
