Government policies and interventions create complex trade-offs. Changes in policies, laws and regulations, and active interventions, create both positive and negative impacts as well as winners and losers. We support governments and regulators across Africa to make the best regulatory decisions based on rigorous regulatory impact assessments.
Our assessments are founded on holistic data-driven impact analysis (cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis or multi-criteria analysis), expert stakeholder engagement facilitation, and customised regulatory and non-regulatory solutions co-designed with our clients.
In the private sector, we are leaders in helping to measure and articulate the social, economic and environmental value created (or destroyed) by a company, sector or investment. To do so we conduct extensive economic impact assessments, using a range of impact measurement techniques. These draw on market analysis, stakeholder engagement and surveys, and economic modeling.
In many cases, our public policy advisory relies on the objective analysis provided by our independent economic and regulatory impact assessments.
