Advisory Services

The intensification of efforts at securing development, at the national and sub-regional levels, and the desire to sustain growth and make it more equitable in a context of a system of governance that is underpinned by the electoral pluralism have generated a considerable increase in demand for IDEP’s advisory services. These demands come from governments, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), other regional organisations, and a number of international agencies. IDEP’s advisory work is mainly technical, and in recent times, has involved assisting with the elaboration of national development plans and long-term visions; proposing guidelines for project monitoring and evaluation; outlining negotiation options; evaluating project and programme results and impacts; and undertaking pre-feasibility studies. The Institute’s capacity to deliver timely and relevant services is bolstered through the use of its extensive network of African specialists.
