Genesis Analytics was one of the first economics-based consulting firms to be established in Africa and has since grown into the largest.

How do we unlock value?

We do this in many ways. For instance, we do it when we figure out the mobile entry strategy for a bank operating in a fast-growing market. When we provide a litigation-proof analytical foundation for a regulator wishing to reduce mobile-phone termination rates, saving low-income consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. We unlock value when we devise a horticulture strategy for a large East African country that can create 100 000 jobs. We unlock value when our analysis prompts the restructuring of a water scheme to serve thousands more households in more needy areas. These are just four examples drawn from our large archive of case studies.

Evaluation for Development spreads its wings

This is how our Evaluation for Development practice meets now that it has added a London contingent to Johannesburg, Nairobi, Cape Town, Oxford and Underberg.

Debby Nixon has joined Noel Verrinder in London. Both Noel, who has worked out of Johannesburg since joining Genesis in 2013, and Debby, will divide their time between London and Nairobi with our colleagues Amreen Choda and Thandiwe Ng'ombe.

Evaluation for Development partner, Alyna Wyatt, said that being based in Africa means "we are in touch with beneficiaries that the programmes we evaluate target.

“Having a UK presence now will strengthen our ability to understand our partners’ and clients’ decision making contexts, ensuring that we are able to support them in their efforts to unlock value in Africa,” said Wyatt.
