Projects, a Public Sector Story

Maximize economic welfare, from project design to implementation

Our team members supported both public and private entities through the development of 50 infrastructure projects, half of which reached financial close. Our exposure to a diverse range of financing instruments and partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa enables us to contribute effectively to the full value chain, from economic assessment up to contract negotiations.

Project Economics

Is the project right for the economy ?

 

Can we make it better ?

We put a value on societal costs and benefits, accounting for uncertainties such as climate change to help you take robust decisions.

We support your decision making process through  :

  • Project economic assessment; or

  • Multicriteria analysis

We also help you maximize societal welfare through economic optimization of project design

It is not always easy to give a monetary value to societal costs and benefits :

How can we value flood protection ?

What is the actual societal benefit of increased access to electricity ?

What about enhanced quality of service ?

What is the actual impact of changes to the environment ?
