Social, Economic, and Key Informant Surveys and Life Cycle Analysis
Understanding the initial baseline helps our clients understand the impact of the investment or intervention. Our team has experience in managing community and industry-specific field surveys, and producing baseline analysis, impact metrics and annual monitoring programs
Economic Rate of Return (ERR) and Sensitivity Analysis
ERR and sensitivity models are critical to understanding the achievement of economic growth, while achieving efficient and sustainable allocation of resources – it therefore looks beyond one entity to consider the net impact of investments on all members of society using shadow prices. Shadow prices are the prices that reflect the economic value to society of the goods and services that the project utilizes to generate its benefits. Understanding a project ERR helps clarify the cost/benefit of activities and project investments, monitor and track performance.
