Governance, Capacity Building & Policy Reform
The lack of sound public policies and institutions is often a key constraint to long-term economic growth and a better quality of life for people in the developing world. Smart and well-implemented policy reform and institutional strengthening programs can yield significant social, economic, and environmental benefits, help attract greater private sector investment, and enable more inclusive participation in the local economy by women and other potentially marginalized segments of society. Building off our long history in the global water, natural resources, and infrastructure sectors, we provide a range of support services for donor-funded institutional strengthening and sector reform programs. We also have extensive experience training experts and organizing seminars, workshops and conferences on topics such as climate change and sustainable development.
As part of our support for the EU-funded “Sustainable Energy for All” (SE4All) initiative and other similar assignments, we are providing technical assistance at the national and regional level throughout Sub-Sahara Africa to help beneficiary countries increase investment in the energy sector. We are also supporting water sector reform and infrastructure programs in countries such as Zambia and Sierra Leone for the Millennium Challenge Corporation.
