The world is becoming increasingly urbanised with cities seen as the engines of growth on which national performance is based. However, a place’s assets and institutions influence their economic prospects. Ensuring the growth of cities and localities in a way which benefits all is a challenge.
We provide insight by advising you on the likely impact of a trend or particular policy on a place through city-based, local or regional analysis, forecasting and modelling. You can then take advantage of emerging opportunities, or, mitigate against any adverse effects.
Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
- How is Brexit and the related effects of migration, trade and investment likely to affect my region, city or local area?
- How do I measure the impact of specific local policy initiatives in my area?
- What is driving the productivity growth of my region, city or local area and how can policy be used to influence or improve the situation?
